'Police Uber' App Launched in South Africa
Please Hold. . . will soon be a thing of the past when calling emergency services and cops. The Namola app is finally here and almost 80 000 people are registered users.
He said: “It’s very simple. You download the app and in case of an emergency, all you have to do is press the emergency button. “Within seconds the message goes to the national control centre of Namola. “The controller will then get your alert and see exactly where you are.” Having your location on will help the app pick up your GPS co-ordinates. Ambrajee said it won’t be easy for people to make hoax calls because people are registered as users.
Peter Matthaei from Namola said: “This is one of the biggest breakthroughs South Africa has had in the fight against crime for years. The way we call for emergency response has finally entered the 21st century.” Stephen Podile, director for Gauteng Community Safety, said they support the app and encourage South Africans to download it.
