The Citizen App is now up and running in Baltimore and it’s thanks in part to Former Maryland Governor candidate & NAACP President Ben Jealous.

“Citizen” is a free app that takes verified 911 calls from the scanners, vets them for threats to public safety, and puts them on the app with push notifications. Notifications are available sometimes as quickly as 90 seconds after 911 is called.
