SpotCrime – an online source for crime data – is introducing a new app that will make near real-time crime data available on Apple TV.
“Apps undoubtedly are the future of TV,” says SpotCrime Founder and President Colin Drane. “Given Apple TV’s innovative use of apps to personalize the home TV experience and the public’s unquenchable demand for more information about crime activity, I believe SpotCrime’s new Apple TV app not only will make crime data more readily available to be shared, but ultimately will drive greater awareness and new measures that will lead to a reduction in crime.”
Using SpotCrime’s Apple TV app, viewers will be able to see up-to-date details about actual crime incidents. Through its proprietary model, SpotCrime pulls crime incident data from multiple sources, including state and local police departments and validated news sources, to produce a comprehensive record of local crime information.
Drake says SpotCrime now has the largest footprint of crime data in the U.S. The company sends its 1.3 million subscribers more than 220 million crime alert emails annually, while over 40 million people interact with the crime information the company generates on a monthly basis.
