UST Global has launched its mobile app for women's safety. iSafe has been rolled out for the Thiruvananthapuram City Police. The app is currently available for Android phones and will soon be available on other platforms. UST Global will be providing the solution to other state police forces as well, officials added.
Through the app, women will be able to send instant alerts to the police control room by using the Panic Button or just by the long press of volume key of their mobile phones. The police control room receives the alert along with information of the location, the
subscriber ID and the IMEI number of the mobile.
The police then immediately dispatches help via the police CRV (Control Room Vehicle)
that is nearest to the distress location. Once iSafe sends an alert to the control room, its position can be tracked until the situation is resolved. The position is visible to the police at the control room and also on tablets that the police force carries.
