About Safecity B.V.
In 2011, SafeCIty won the social innovation prize in the Netherlands with a live streaming video smartphone app for safety. Citizens were able to stream live images of incidents to the police control room. SafeCity BV was founded in 2011.
The SafeCity team noticed that more and more apps were being developed to allow citizens to participate in safety & security. We also saw that the use of these important apps that can contribute a lot to social safety was not easily picked up by governments and end users. We are convinced that citizens’ eyes and ears are very important intelligent sensors for a positive contribution to safety.
Our ambition is to build a bridge for the use of these citizen participation apps by independently comparing the apps so that a well-founded choice can be made between the apps.
Our motivation is characterized by an unwavering interference in a Safe & Sound society.
