Many people are victims of crimes every day, and we wanted to do what we can to prevent some.
What it does
It allows a user to log in and to report suspicious behavior near their homes. It will then send an alert to everyone in the neighborhood and contact the local law enforcement. A user will also be able to find the crime rate of any city.
How I built it
Using Java, xml, and firebase
Challenges I ran into
Implementing firebase to hold login information was a challenge
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Being able to implement the map and have a way for users to log in is an accomplishment that I'm proud of.
What I learned
I learned how to use xml and Android Studio, and how to implement firebase in an application.
What's next for Crime Watch
Coordinating with law enforcement agencies and sending them alerts are a few of our next steps.
