An inventive use of tech to help catch bank robbers and make America safer
License: Free for personal use only
The FBI is asking for help in locating and identifying some of the most dangerous and prolific suspects from unsolved bank robberies.
Users can enable alerts through the app that will inform them when a bank robbery has occurred near their location. It will also allow you to submit your own tips and sightings of the suspects.
- Allows the public to view, search, sort, and bookmark bank robbers
- Receive push notifications when a bank robbery has occurred near your location
- Bank robberies can be sorted by the date they occurred, the category they fall under (i.e., armed serial bank robber), the FBI field office working the case, or the state where the robbery occurred
- Map view to show locations of bank robberies in a given region
The app runs off the bankrobbers.fbi.gov database, so not every bank robbery that occurs nationwide will be shown.
