Crowdsourced intelligence gathering can prevent such incidents as Chelsea bombing

ARLINGTON, VA Sept. 22, 2016 When New York bombing suspect Ahmad Rahami was captured in under four hours Monday, it proved reactionary crowdsourced intelligence gathering works. But how can these types of incidents be prevented before they occur?

As part of their duty of care obligation, companies like Hearst, one of the nation’s largest diversified media, information and services companies, are turning to next generation solutions like LiveSafe, the world’s leading mobile safety platform, to help avert incidents before they occur.

Prevention of possible incidents have become a top priority for companies. If an employee sees a suspicious duffel bag or know someone who could become a threat, who do they tell?

LiveSafe answers these questions by taking the concept of “see something, say something” to the next level, allowing employees to do something.

“LiveSafe bridges the gap between being a good response program and sending out mass notifications after the fact,” said Hearst Global Director of Corporate Security Jim Cawley, whose company is an investor in LiveSafe. “It bridges the gap back to giving people the ability to solve a problem in advance or potentially identify a problem in advance so the right people can solve the problem.”

Utilizing two-way, real-time interaction, LiveSafe easily connects individuals and security and facilities teams. Users can send text, photos, videos and precise location information to report incidents.

“LiveSafe empowers people to become part of the solution by being attentive, having situational awareness and not being afraid to report something,” Cawley said. “It’s easy to look back on things and say, ‘oh, we should have identified this or that.’ The authorities don’t have the bandwidth to do that, so we rely on our employees to feel comfortable to report what they see.”

LiveSafe is implemented at major corporations, hospitals, malls, college campuses and large sports and entertainment arenas across the country to create a safer environment for employees and customers.
