Twitter for police scanners

Problem – the news covers only a tiny fraction of police events. They are also too verbose and too ‘story’ oriented (rather than fact oriented).

  • A place for volunteers listening to scanner to report events
  • Event reporting would follow a strict ontology. This way: events are easily searchable. it’s easy to see if someone has reported the event already. easy to find and update with more info. easy to scan events and get a feeling of what is happening in your city (the larger picture).
  • A webapp would be a simple dynamic teletype-view so one can see events as they are reported. Real-time.
