Abu Dhabi Public Prosecution is calling on members of the public to help combat crime via a new smartphone app.

Available for both iOS and Android, ‘Inform the Prosecution’ allows citizens, residents and tourists to file a report, in both English and Arabic, on any illegal or suspicious activity directly to the authorities.

When filing an incident, important information such as location and time, as well as evidence via a photo or video clip, can be included. The sender can also choose to keep their identity anonymous.

An e-notification will then be sent to the sender’s phone via SMS and legal procedures will be initiated.

Ali Mohammed Al Beloushi, Attorney-General of the emirate of Abu Dhabi, said in an official statement, “The application seeks to increase communication between the community and the judiciary through modern technology, in a way that preserves community security, as part of our corporate social responsibility programmes.”

The app is available now for download on iOS and Android.
