(Before It's News)


On August 24th, 2016, developers and students from the Noosphere Engineering School proudly released the My Police app. The mobile service is designed to improve police effectiveness in preventing crimes, while protecting everyone who uses the app.

As this is a volunteer, social project, it likely would have remained in obscurity. Thanks to Noosphere, founded by Max Polyakov, the app received badly needed support and promotion. The experts from Noosphere immediately recognized the potential of the app and made a huge contribution to the project. This allowed the startup to transform their idea into a working app far quicker than anticipated.

The My Police app is free for download and, at this stage, is tied only to Dnipro city police. However, soon the app will be available for use in other Ukrainian cities. First in line are Lviv, Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhya and Odessa.

In addition, Max Polyakov played a key role in helping Noosphere get involve Vladimir Bohonys, head of the Dnipro police patrol, in the project. Thanks to their close cooperation with, and a number of key insights from, Mr. Bohonys, the app became even more useful for both the users and the police.

The My Police app has a variety features to foster public safety and provide 24/7 direct connection between the police and app users. One feature is the “SOS button” that makes a request to the police to come to their location with just one click. Once the button is pressed, the app automatically sends the user’s identity and location coordinates to the nearest police station. Another useful feature is the “Active witness”. This allows users to immediately submit photos or videos of crimes they witness to the police.

On top that, app users can leave feedback on and rate police officers on their professionalism, find the closest police stations and emergency rooms on an interactive map, get general and legal guidelines on how to deal with various emergency situations, and read up on the latest police news.

“Sharing the knowledge and technology to make the world better is one of our key priorities. Thus we believe in the future of My Police and decided to actively develop the app. To some extent, My Police is similar to the Uber app, but for the police. It is as easy to call for the police with the My Police app, as to call a taxi with Uber. So we hope that My Police will become more popular and be on every smartphone. This will help reduce crime rates significantly,” said Max Polyakov, Chairman and Founder of Noosphere.

The is no doubt that the My Police app has huge potential for further growth and development, especially when considering the experiences of similar startups from other countries. For instance, the mobile app, Mark43, founded by Scott Crouch, is, to a large extent in line with the My Police app, as the Mark43 is designed for the same purposes. With the Mark43, the app has already started working with a number of police departments in Los Angeles County, raised $41 million of investment and continues to grow. The success of Mark43 should serve as a good example for My Police app developers and keep them pushing for the My Police to be the next big thing on the Ukrainian app market.On August 24th, 2016, developers and students from the Noosphere Engineering School proudly released the My Police app. The mobile service is designed to improve police effectiveness in preventing crimes, while protecting everyone who uses the app.
