A new app will become available for IPhone and Android devices later this month that will allow people to rate their local police department, as well as their individual police encounters. Possibly the most impressive thing about this app, is that it was created by a few young teenagers who wanted to find solutions to the problem of police corruption.
14-year-old Caleb Christian and his two sisters, 16-year-old Ima, and 15 year old Asha, plan to release their revolutionary new app “Five-O” on August 18th. The app will allow people to review and rate their experiences with police much like the app “Yelp!” allows people to rate and review private businesses.
Five-O will allow users to share the details of their police encounters and traffic stops with the world, and will make it possible for victims of police brutality to instantly gather local support for their case.
“We’ve been hearing about the negative instances in the news, for instance most recently the Michael Brown case, and we always talk about these issues with our parents, they always try to reinforce that we should focus on solutions. It’s important to talk about the issues, but they try to make us focus on finding solutions. That made us think why don’t we create an app to help us solve this problem,” Ima Christian told Business Insider.
