New app, Lightcatch, allows users in rural areas to anonymously self-report crime

Lightcatch notifies people that something might not be right in their neighbourhood.

The free app lets users self-report when they see anything suspicious.

“If I am in trouble, I should be able to let everybody nearby know what just took place,” app creator Darren Boyer said.

“We all have mobile phones, we can all put that information together for law enforcement.”

The idea for the app came to Boyer after police warned him to be careful having his identity on a Facebook crime page.
