Solving Crimes Using Technology


Denver, CO (November 14, 2012) – Crime Stoppers of Gilpin & Clear Creek Counties and Metro Denver Crime Stoppers officials were joined by metro area dignitaries and law enforcement officials at the state of the art Denver Police Crime Lab yesterday morning to officially launch a new mobile app to assist in keeping Colorado safe.

Dan Oates - Aurora Chief of Police, Bill Nagal - Denver Deputy Chief of Police, Steve Johnson - Assistant Director of the Colorado Bureau of Investigations, Alex Martinez - Denver Manager of Safety, Anthony Graves – Director of Government Affairs for Visit Denver and Javier Maupome - Consul for Legal Affairs for Consulate of Mexico all took time out of their busy schedules to join Metro Denver Crime Stoppers on this historic launch.

Metro Denver Crime Stoppers teamed with mobile app developer CellFlare, Inc to bring this advance technology to the community. “This is really one of a kind technology that allows the user to easily submit anonymous tips via email, photos and even video,” said Mike Mills, board President, “an extremely important feature in which the entire Metro Denver Crime Stoppers program was built – the ability for our tipsters to remain 100% anonymous.”

In addition, Metro Denver Crime Stoppers will be able to send broadcast urgent push messages to those who have downloaded the free app, to ensure that the public is notified of time sensitive cases, such as AMBER alerts and MEDINA alerts.

Users of the app will also be able to browse recent crimes, look at the areas Most Wanted individuals and find the closest police station and keeping with the tradition of the Metro Denver Crime Stoppers program – all tipsters remain anonymous and are eligible for an award of up to $2,000 when a tip that they have submitted assists law enforcement in solving a case.

To date, Metro Denver Crime Stoppers has paid out over $600,000 in awards to citizens who have helped solve thousands of cases.

"Crime Stoppers of Gilpin & Clear Creek Counties have pulled resources with Metro Denver Crime Stoppers for many years" said Danney Goracke, board President "and this was not exception. We played a key roll in the development of this app and we are very happy to bring this technology to our communities."

The Metro Denver Crime Stoppers mobile app is immediately available as a FREE download on the App Store for Apple ® devices, on Google Play™ for Android devices and on the BlackBerry App World for select BlackBerry devices.
