Introducing Good Cop Bad Cop (GCBC)
The Voice of Your Community... Amplified!
The Good Cop/Bad Cop (GCBC) mobile application aims to improve the relationship between police officers and the communities they are tasked with protecting. To this end, the app collects real-time data and grants users the ability to rate the quality of an interaction with a police officer. Once submitted, the ratings are assigned to the precinct responsible for policing the geographical area where the interaction occurred. The ratings accumulated by each individual precinct are referred to as the precinct’s Community Satisfaction Score (CSS). These scores allow us to shine a spotlight on precincts with strong community ties; they also create a layer of accountability for officers by providing community members with data to support complaints against poorly rated precincts.
Frequently Asked Questions
How often are there updates to the App?
Precinct Community Satisfaction Scores (CSS) are updated in real-time as users in your community assign ratings to officers in their respective geographical areas.
It all sounds great, but what does this App actually do?
We understand that discussing the relationship between police officers and the communities they are tasked with protecting can be a polarizing issue. As a result, our app allows the voice of community members to be amplified with every rating, positive or negative. The app simply collects ratings and reports out the satisfaction score for precincts within the user's geographical area.
I’ve seen other Apps that serve similar purposes. What makes yours the best?
We are the best because we maintain a neutral stance while aspiring to bridge any gaps that exist between community members and police officers. We recognize that there are "Good Cops" and "Bad Cops" in every city, and we aim to place a spotlight on the "Good Cops" and "Good" Precincts while giving community members the tools to hold their neighborhood precincts accountable when applicable.
