Eyes on the Street

Crime Stoppers WA have enlisted the help of Ninjas to combat crime.

Crime Stoppers WA and Perth’s own Ninja Software have partnered to make the streets safer and help stop crime.

Available now – the new Crime Stoppers ‘Eyes on the Street‘ app makes the ability to report suspicious behaviour or information on criminal activity more accessible than ever.

The app is designed for people who work in industries such as security, parking rangers and ridesharing that results with being often out and about.

‘Eyes on the Street’ lets you rapidly make note and give several key pieces of information to Crime Stoppers in less than a minute in a new user friendly way.

Your privacy is of key note, the app collects no data from the user other than the details of the report so you may remain anonymous.

The clean interface and easy to use buttons make your report completely stress free, you can state exactly what needs to be said by following the flow of the questions and there is no need to call and potentially have details slip your mind.

The entire process is broken into 4 simple steps.

#1 The summary

Step 1 screenshot Eyes on the street

On the first step you are given 3 choices to answer “What is the report about: ‘Drugs’, ‘Firearms’ or ‘Other criminal activities’;
You can then add some extra details about the report, and select if this was a ‘one-off’ incident.

#2 Location and Activity

Step 2 screenshot eyes on the street

Here you select one of the 5 buttons provided to let Crime Stoppers know what type of location the incident has taken place; ‘Business premises’, ‘Private residence’, ‘Public space’, ‘Online’ or ‘Other’.
You can then type the specific address or use the Google maps input to send a pinpoint location of where you currently are if this is relevant.

#3 People and Vehicles

This step allows you to enter any detailed information you may have about the people involved in the incident. You can enter their name, any description you have on physical features or vehicles, and the role they are playing in your report.

#4 Final Details

The final step of the process offers you two options that relate to your privacy as a user before you submit.

“I am happy to provide my details to Crime Stoppers staff and Police investigators”

This will give you the option to send your name, phone number and/or Email address so that you may be contacted to assist the investigation with more information.

“I want to remain completely anonymous”

Selecting this option will keep your personal details completely private and will send only the information you have provided describing the incident.

If you work an outside job or are often out in the community we could all use your set of eyes. ‘Eyes on the Street’ has simplified the process to inform Crime Stoppers with your valuable information so please grab it for free here.
