AlertID is a powerful tool to help citizens throughout San Francisco and the Bay Area become more aware of crime
Las Vegas, Nevada and Palo Alto, California (PRWEB) January 09, 2013
AlertID® today announced that everyone who lives, works and/or visits San Francisco can now receive crime advisory alerts through AlertID that come directly from the City of San Francisco. The local crime information significantly expands the other services already available through AlertID, all at no cost to members or law enforcement agencies.
More than 7 million people live in the San Francisco metropolitan area and more than 15 million visit every year. Through AlertID, all of them can now stay connected with public safety authorities and receive alerts and other public safety information critical to helping them protect their families and communities.
The expansion of services in San Francisco follows another recent announcement that AlertID partnered with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office to provide local crime information throughout Alameda County. In addition, AlertID already provides sex offender, severe weather, earthquake and neighborhood safety alerts across California and the rest of the country.
“AlertID is a powerful tool to help citizens throughout San Francisco and the Bay Area become more aware of crime and other threats to the safety of our community, and together with law enforcement we can be more proactive in helping ensure the safety of children and families throughout the area.” Chris Wenzel, Retired Chief of Police, Danville Police Department.
AlertID has proven to help reduce crime and uses advanced technology to create a communication platform that connects citizens and federal, state, and local authorities to provide critical information and alerts that can help people protect their families and communities.
San Francisco residents, workers and visitors now have universal access to crime and threat advisories, sex offender alerts, severe weather advisories, online community watch discussion groups, an interactive crime and emergency map, and other AlertID services. Alerts are available online and on mobile applications and are delivered via email and mobile push notifications. Members can monitor and receive alerts for their neighborhoods as well as other areas such as their workplace and child’s school.
“This expansion helps protect children and families in one of the largest major metropolitan areas of the country, allowing people to be aware of crime and other threats and to take steps to protect themselves,” said Keli Wilson, Founder, AlertID.
