LAS VEGAS and PALO ALTO, Calif., June 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AlertID™ today announced that its free smartphone app is now available all over Orange County. Using information from trusted law enforcement officials and the community, AlertID provides up-to-the-minute information on crime, sex offenders, severe weather, natural disasters and more.
"The AlertID app pairs the most up to date information on crime, severe weather and emergency alerts with trusted resources to help us live more safely," Keli Wilson, founder of AlertID, said.
AlertID is supported by its partner, the National Crime Prevention Council (home of McGruff the Crime Dog®) and has been proven to reduce crime as much as 30 percent in some areas.
AlertID works by connecting users to public safety authorities and other public safety information through alerts on their smartphones, tablets and computers. Alerts are provided by trusted sources including public safety agencies, local law enforcement, schools, neighborhood groups, neighbors, family members and friends. This connection between law enforcement and surrounding communities has been proven to reduce crime, and now Orange County can be a part of it.

It has made a dramatic impact in helping to reduce crime and protect families by directly involving the community in policing efforts," Chris Perry, Director of the Nevada Department of Public Safety, said.
