Americans and other citizens of the world are currently living in an era of greater division, polarity, extremism and disparities than ever before. Current events in the news and countless statistics highlight everyday injustices committed against innocent people simply because of prejudice and discrimination on any number of fronts.

In American society, these injustices include the very same categories for which the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission federal laws were designed to protect – freedom of basic human civil rights regardless of race, ethnicity or national origin, religion, age, disability or genetic information, gender identity and/or sexual orientation. Yet despite these laws, and because of (partial) enforcement required only in the workplace, discrimination and harassment of citizens occurs blatantly and rampantly, particularly among persons of color in the United States. Depending upon one’s geography in other parts of the world, any number of factors may contribute to the violation and/or perpetuation of human rights and abuse.

Imagine a future in which technology can be used for the betterment of our society, for preventing discrimination, injustice, senseless killing, wrongful imprisonment and/or human civil rights abuse(s). What if there was a way to create an incentive for doing what’s right by the law to protect citizens, as well as law enforcement, with a means of providing checks and balances on power that holds everyone accountable for their actions? What if that same system of checks and balances could be applied to other parts of the world so that human suffering could be avoided?
We would like to propose an integrated technology application that will prevent civil rights abuse(s) and provide due process of law for anyone who is unjustly detained or stopped by law enforcement. This community ‘app’ (GoVia:Community Police Safety App) simultaneously will improve police job performance in tandem with the community, better protect police officers as well, and provide new employment opportunities for others who wish to promote the common good of our society.
Seed/start-up costs of $500,000 is a conservative estimate to cover: the protection of this intellectual property and patent filing (legal), regular business start-up tasks (including strategic collaborative partnerships for market launch) and beginning the actual design of the app (R&D, technology development. This is a complex app with multiple components and linkages.) This also would include, but is not limited to, encryption for cybersecurity.
Given the current political environment and national spotlight on the number of consent decrees issued by the Department of Justice across police departments throughout the country, the best time to gain both investor and consumer buy-in is now. There is no other app like this. But the speed of today’s emerging technologies requires no delay. Also, once the development of this app goes ‘live’, there are entire industries and competing business powers that would not wish for this type of change to be seen in the world. (Similar to the current U.S. healthcare system, there is a disincentive towards wellness in favor of economic entities profiting from the illness of others.)

Whether you’re pulling someone over or it’s a car crash. Have the app available.
How do we give our police officers more time to make a better decision? How do we give our police officers training to Deescalate a situation?
Mental health – Police officers are not trained to handle mental ill patients.
Let’s start in the beginning with the app. Do you have to sign up and fill out information. If you do not have any mental health issues you continue on as normal. But if you do have mental health issues then you go through this process.
