0

During the April 28 Techpoint Mira Awards, a ceremony honoring the top businesses and leaders in Indiana tech, the City of Fishers received several awards. Fishers Police Dept. won an honorable mention for Best Tech Service of The Year for its CrimeWatch app.

The mobile app offers two-way communications between police officers and residents when residents report suspicious activity. The app has more than 4,200 users and 600 reported incidents since it launched in May of last year.

The app was developed by Assistant Chief Ed Gebhart and Auri Rahimzadeh.

“It’s exciting to see Fishers so well represented at the Mira Awards with both nominees and winners,” Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness stated in a press release. “We’re truly a smart, vibrant and entrepreneurial city and it shows with tonight’s representation. Assistant Chief Gebhart’s idea came to life with Auri’s development skills to solve a community problem. To me, that’s smart government.”

“We’d like to thank the City of Fishers for actively encouraging the use of technology and enabling citizens and police to work together for a safer community,” Gebhart and Rahimzadeh jointly stated.
