A mobile application used to provide citizens the proper legal support when they are pulled over by the police. The app provides legal rights education to both users and law enforcement officers, making their encounters more compliant.

This mobile application could favor less unfair encounters with police officers, and empower citizens to be informed about their rights. Besides providing legal advice, this tool could support a governmental response to alleged police misconduct, as the data generated can be admissible in court.

By merely clicking on the app icon when a police patrol approaches, the app instantly displays information about citizens' legal rights, thus orientating the limits of law enforcement and empowering the citizen. When activated, the app autonomously alerts the user's contact list about the situation through text message, while it records the audio field to audit the law enforcement later, if necessary. Finally, a “text-to-contact” feature can send the records along with text message alerts to emergency contacts previously determined by the user.
