Mass Layoffs At Crime Reporting App ‘Citizen’


The neighborhood crime reporting app ‘Citizen’ announced mass layoffs this week, Joseph Cox reports for Vice’s Motherboard. The crime app is a concrete local fixture in some cities and towns, but the app has struggled to monetize its userbase. Civilian workers for the app take information shared on police radio and send push notifications to users nearby, and users are prompted to upload their own photos and videos on emerging situations.
