ABOUT INNER-CHANGE INTRODUCTION TO MY THESIS PROJECT
THE MISSION OF MY THESIS IS TO INTRODUCE SIMPLE MOBILE SOLUTIONS FOR REPORTING USEFUL TIPS WHEN WITNESSING CRIME, WHILE INTERACTING WITH LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT.
Crime is a part of our daily reality and when it comes to speaking up about witnessing crimes, it’s obvious that there’s a disconnect between law enforcement and the community. Every community is entitled to a safe environment under the rules of law and system of justice. However, communities where poverty and crime are prevalent have lost faith in their ability to secure those rights. The goal of my thesis is to increase community support and stimulate interchangeable information crucial to personal safety and cooperation with law enforcement. Today’s wireless technology has basically redefined the relationship of communication in society. Currently mobile devices are only used to dial 9-1-1 to receive help during potential emergencies or for an actual emergency. Nevertheless, with modern technology and the implementation of my thesis, mobile devices can become extremely valuable when reporting a crime or crime tip.

MOBILE SOLUTIONS REDEFINING COMMUNICATION
It could become useful to send a text message tip, as well as capture an unlawful situation or criminal suspect and report them anonymously to law enforcement as video or picture messages. Given that many people would rather be anonymous when reporting crimes to the police, the ability for them to communicate using their mobile device is ideal especially if the individual is uncomfortable verbally explaining what they have witnessed. The police alone cannot achieve crime prevention. It is evident that they must work together hand-in-hand with the public to combat crime throughout the community. For that reason, law enforcement depends heavily on the assistance of the community to report crime tips. Since mobile technology is continuing to become more prevalent within younger generations, introducing them to my simple mobile solutions of interacting with law enforcement is a way for them to want to help engage in breaking the cycles of crime within their communities in an anonymous method.

MARKETING STRATEGY EFFECTIVE COOPERATION WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT
THE INNER-CHANGE DATABASE HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO SERVE THE SAN FRANCISCO POLICE FORCES TO PROVIDE NEW STRATEGIES AND HELP EXPAND THEIR COMMUNITY SUPPORT.
Since I’ve designed my thesis to connect internally with local police departments, a major benefit of INNER-CHANGE is developing marketing campaigns specific to their perspective audiences and community. Building a positive image, that is recognized and trusted can help improve interchangeable information and community cooperation with local police. The marketing campaign was designed as a piloting project for the San Francisco Police Department. The marketing strategies developed for the indoor campaign in San Francisco are intended to promote my WITNESS, CAPTURE, SEND campaign and get the word out about the free INNER-CHANGE mobile application and services. This campaign reaches the attention of the first perspective audience of transit riders commuting to and from the city. It’s exhibited within the downtown Muni and BART stations.
