Everywhere in America today, you see the headlines. People shot, police under fire, a nation questioning the role of law enforcement, while demanding the protection our Officers provide. Everyday, Police Officers put on their uniforms, and go out into the communities they serve; unsure what they will find, who they’ll encounter, and if they’ll come home alive.
What if existing technology could provide a ready answer? What if we could reduce deadly encounters by a significant percentage? What if law abiding citizens and police had an instantaneous way to provide each other with information and instructions that can de-escalate a situation before it ever begins?
Using smartphone technology already in the hands of 68%+ of Americans1, SIX presents a method for the Police to identify and confirm the identity of citizens without ever leaving their car.
Conversely, citizens who have been pulled over by Law Enforcement (the most common form of Police/Public interaction2), can readily identify themselves to the officers, letting the police know that the person they are about to interact with is a law abiding, cooperative citizen, willing to interact in a non-confrontational manner.
SIX is an automated capability that transmits license and registration information through radio frequency and, using top level security, avoids online hacking.
In the same way Uber and other ride-sharing applications have changed the nature of an entire industry, SIX will do much the same for Police/Public interactions. Like Uber, the barrier to entry is next to zero - anyone with a smart phone can download the app, create a secure profile, and begin the process of making their encounters with Law Enforcement more efficient, and safer. When the Officer knows, before he/she even steps out of their patrol vehicle, that the person they’re about to deal with has no prior record, no history of violence, crime, or public safety issues, they can approach, safe in the knowledge that the person in the car ahead of them isn’t a dangerous felon.
Conceptually, a driver creates a profile, including their driver’s license number, and a picture thereof. Their registration, and insurance information round out the profile package. For those looking to go the extra mile, a sticker can be placed on the car (like Uber) informing the officer that the driver is SIX enabled.
When the officer completes the initial portion of the traffic stop, and both cars are now stationary, the officers SIX app sends out an interrogation query, via blue tooth. A SIX enabled driver (and/or passenger) receives the query and can choose to respond. Using SMS based technology, the Officer informs the driver why they've been pulled over, and that they are required to confirm their identity by taking a 'selfie' with their phone.
Visual identification software on the officer’s side of the exchange correlates the ID photograph from the profile, to the driver’s ID photo. Once confirmed registration is checked, and insurance verified, in seconds, via the app. The officer can proceed to use that data to input into use their existing in-car computer to check on outstanding warrants, prior’s etc. All of this, without ever leaving the car.
Using their app, the officer can then issue basic instructions to the driver, before approaching the car - Radio off, dome light on, hands on the wheel etc. - If the driver does not meet the criterion of a safe approach then the officer can call for back up.
Protecting them from not only potential violence, but also from any allegations of abuse or mistreatment. Alternatively, the officer can issue a summons through SIX and never even have to approach the other car.
For Police Departments around the country, technology has always come with a heavy price. Tasers, lap tops, body-cameras, all come with stiff upfront, and long term capital costs.
SIX leverages the existing technology, using a cell phone app that will be issued to officers at ZERO cost. A one time license fee will be assessed to the department, based on the number of users. For the general public, this incredible safety measure will be available for less than the cost of a song on iTunes; and represent an incredible layer of safety, security and sense of comfort when dealing with Law Enforcement Personnel.
The additional speed, and efficiency with which SIX will support traffic citations, will reduce the length of each incident by as much as 50% - freeing Officers to perform their functions more quickly, and getting John Q Public back on the road.
Using proprietary rules-based regulatory analytic software, first developed for the byzantine problems of international banking, SIX overcomes differences in state laws and regulations, making adoption for the Officer and the Public totally seamless.
SIX offers a unique solution-set to a peculiarly modern problem. We predict that as this technology spreads, it can help the Police and the Public develop a greater sense of trust and well being. When an Officer can take a large portion of the unknown out of approaching a car; they don’t need to adopt the tactics of aggression that are so vital to coming home safe that night. By de-escalating the situation with technology, the person in the car doesn’t have to fear that the officer is going to resort to force; the reasons for the traffic stop have been made known, via text, the officer knows who you are before the window is ever rolled down. Simple instructions have already been issued, and hopefully followed; creating an environment of trust before the first words are spoken.
