Surveillance & Safety Apps.

It's better to have one and not need it than need it and not have it.

Trumpgoons are out in Detroit, Portland and Chicago. If you live in a big city, they might be near you.

If you know of any other good ones, please share.

1. “Hands Up 4 Justice,” (iPhone and Android) allows people to discreetly record interactions with police officers during traffic stops, etc. http://ww12.handsuptheapp.com

The app integrates emergency contacts and GPS,
uploads to YouTube or a Dropbox account. Kirkwood wanted to make it easier for people of color (who are disproportionately stopped by police on US highways) to record their interactions without fear of intimidation.

2. The ACLU's app allows anyone to film interactions between police and citizens and upload footage to the ACLU’s website.

3. “I’m Getting Arrested,” is a free Android app that instantly sends texts to emergency contacts that you’ve pre-programmed into your phone.

4. “Stop and Frisk Watch” allows you to report police misconduct as well as connect with other users via community feeds.
