With the help of detailed information at street level, the newly launched Danish crime watch service Klriti, wants to help mobile phone users to avoid dangerous neighbourhoods in Sweden, according to a press release.
Klriti is based on an algorithm that evaluates the safety of the locations in Sweden. The data, based on approximately 170,000 incident reports collected from the Swedish police's public feed, are analyzed and assigned safety points, which helps the user to assess an area's security profile.
According to the press release, the purpose of the service is to give citizens useful information, to be informed about local crime or offences committed in a certain location.
Klriti is said to give the user a complete overview of the incidents that have occurred in the area, and immediate access to information about crime that police have reported in the region during the last 14 days.
The plan, according Klriti's creators, is to first evaluate the response of the app in Sweden, and later launch the service also in Norway and Denmark.
