Citizen Goes Live in Indianapolis

Citizen, a free app that keeps you up to date with local safety information through 24/7, real-time notifications about nearby emergencies and ongoing incidents, has gone live in Indianapolis, the company said.

Alerts about incidents like fires, car collisions, and searches for missing people provide information for your own safety. The alerts are accompanied by live stories, real-time updates, and user-generated content to provide you with situational awareness and a comprehensive picture of what´s happening around you.

Citizen has evacuated people from burning buildings, diverted school buses from nearby terrorist attacks and, in one instance, led to the rescue of a one-year-old boy from a stolen car.
