Reach SOS (App)
“Reach SOS” is an app for smartphones designed by a group of young programmers collaborating for the purpose of preventing and combating crime and promoting citizen security at the individual and social level. It works through the geolocation of the users and the direct contact with people previously defined as "safe", as well as generating maps of insecurity that can be shared with contacts as with the rest of the citizenry. Still in development, the app aims to find ways of linking with responsible local and national authorities to improve the impact of the service it offers.
