It's all about communication

Improve Officer - Community Relations

JCPD officers see a lot - the vast majority of their day is spent dealing with negative situations.  Because they are busy, officers don't always have time to explain things in the way a resident wants to hear.   WOTS structures communication between the police and community, saving the officer time and creating a positive connection.

Resolve More Issues

How often do JCPD patrol officers receive first hand information from a community member making a complaint?  Do they receive pictures of the issue?  What about an accurate location?  WOTS is designed to get the patrol officer the right information so the issue can be quickly identified and resolved.

Increase JCPD's Reputation

Often when residents call in a complaint, officers investigate and take action without the resident ever knowing.  The resident is unclear when an officer is on the way and if the resident isn't there when the officer is, no one explains what actions were taken.  By automatically providing a feedback loop between officers and residents, WOTS makes sure residents realize the work being done.

Started on back of a napkin

It started on a napkin.  No really, it did.  This idea was formed when Public Safety Director James Shea asked Councilwoman Candice Osborne how technology could be applied to resolve communication issues between the police and community.  Two years later they found a technologist willing to build it.  We believe WOTS can and will transform how the JCPD and Jersey City community relate.
