Empower Domestic Violence App

Resolve harnesses the power of the smartphone by eliminating the need for additional GPS/communication devices; an even more effective approach in disruption of DV.

How it works:

  • Besides the GPS device worn by the offender, the survivor is only required to carry a smartphone that tracks her location using the most advanced GPS technology available and also enables direct communication with the monitoring center and law enforcement.
  • Once the DV application is downloaded, it automatically pairs the smartphone with the offender’s device creating a “virtual zone” that travels with the survivor as she moves, such that an alert will sound if the offender comes within a set distance of the survivor’s device.
  • Alerts can be sent even before the offender breaches a static or mobile exclusion zone. For example, if a static exclusion zone surrounds the survivor’s home by 200 yards at any angle, a preliminary warning alert could sound if the offender came within 500 yards of that 200 yard barrier.
  • Similarly, a preliminary alert could be sent as the offender approached the survivor’s mobile exclusion zone, with a more urgent alert sent once the offender breached the specific radius surrounding the victim.
