Stand up against crime in your community without hesitating or being afraid. Don’t wait for an emergency to share the information that could prevent it.
Unfortunately, traditional channels like 911 are not anonymous and do not have the ability to receive media like photos or videos. They are also not equipped to deal with non-emergency tips.
When you see something, Torch is your tool to say something. Use Torch to submit a video, audio, photo or text tip to local authorities in less than 30 seconds. You can’t be targeted or accused by criminals or authorities because you’re completely anonymous.
The future of safe streets is the technology already in our hands. It’s time to use it.
Use the Torch app to report any information you have about a theft, assault, drugs, weapons, corruption, suspicious activity, terrorism, human trafficking and more.
Start by writing a message in any language and attaching your photos or videos. Then, follow the on-screen prompts to choose the type of tip you’re sharing (crime, city or school) and category that best describes what your tip is about.
Torch’s simple user interface even allows you to describe suspects and vehicles of interest by guiding you through the information that makes identification easier.
Once you submit your tip, it is routed to the agency or authorities best suited to take action. If they need more information, Torch’s two-way chat allows them to ask for it right through the app. Message back anonymously, or choose not to.
With Torch, you have the power to make your community safer, while staying in control of what you share.
With Torch, you’ll receive the most advanced notifications when an emergency or hazard is affecting your area.
The same two-way communication that allows you to send tips to authorities can be used by agencies to send you location-based text notifications and photos during an emergency.
With Torch, you can reply back to emergency notifications with messages and GPS location to get assistance, if needed.
