Project Safety was conceived in 2006 as a proactive crime deterrent that allows its members to quickly and easily construct an event snapshot and information trail to be used by friends and family members as well as law enforcement if a disappearance or other crime presents the need. When first conceptualized it was designed to build an event snapshot prior to the event through the use of a laptop or desktop PC. Thanks to today’s Internet and Network connected Smartphones, tablets and PCs, the system is being designed for use with all Internet and network connected devices! With 3G and 4G networks, as well as available public and personal Wi-Fi hotspots, data can move quickly between these devices and the system. Project Safety’s basic services will be available free to the public with an option to purchase a low cost premium package that includes various GPS functions. Patents have been filed by Alan Blair, the designer and founder, and are pending. Read More
