LANSING, Mich. (WLNS)—Do you want to record a possible case of police misconduct? There’s now an app for that.
The ACLU of Michigan launched a free app that allows users to record and report possible police misconduct from their smart phone. The program also includes a “Know Your Rights” section. The Mobile Justice MI app, developed by Quadrant 2, features three functions:
- Record- Captures audio and video files that are automatically sent to the ACLU of Michigan.
- Witness– Allows a user to send out an alert and their location so other users can move toward the location and record the interaction.
- Report– Allows the user to fill out a complete incident report that is sent to the ACLU of Michigan for review.
The free app is available in IOS and Android versions and can be downloaded through the ACLU of Michigan’s website. A grant from the National ACLU paid for development of the app.
