Relay for Citizens

Founding Designer

Designed software for US citizens to safely report safety concerns to the nearest first responder

appicono logo

Relay was an idea out of a High Alpha sprint week brought by a community police chief. The police chief told us that he desired for his officers to be more connected to their community. There weren't enough resources for officers to be on every street corner interacting with their community. This disconnect (as we all know) with their community was having real consequences.For example, the chief told us that most 911 calls weren't real emergencies causing the operators to be flooded with non-emergencies reports. It wasn't uncommon for some citizens to be put on hold when they called 911. These non-emergency type calls used up valuable emergency service resources (think an ambulance needing to go out to a house only to find its not needed) when they could be used elsewhere.All of these problems and more is why Relay was born. We started building an app for a citizen, anywhere in the US, to be able to report a non-emergency directly to their local first responders.
