July 8, 2020 – With the public awareness of the fatal stories and injustices that can come along with traffic stops on the rise, many people are wondering if there’s anything they can do to help protect themselves. The good news is a new app can help. Black-owned startup Pull Over Backup has answered the call for help with the launch of its featured-filled new app.
Pull Over Backup is simple and easy to use recording interactions live on social media accounts, while also sending automatic location, text, and live stream to desired contacts. The app also includes a interpreter mode for deaf or hard of hearing users. The combination of these two features greatly increases police transparency and enhances the likelihood of community members being treated justly, with dignity and respect.
“Pull Over Backup is trying to mend the relationship between our communities and law enforcement through transparency and community policing,” commented Samba, founder of Pull Over Backup. “We know the app will deliver real value to the people who need it most, and hopefully one day wont be needed.”
So far the interest in the new app has been remarkable.
A community member recently remarked, “I think this will really bring our communities together, just knowing that the app would be there when I need it, would make me less nervous to drive, even when I’m not doing anything wrong.”
