Rio apps re­port vi­o­lence hotspots

The Guardian Weekly - - World roundup -

3 Rio res­i­dents are in­creas­ingly sub­scrib­ing to crowd­sourc­ing apps and fol­low­ing so­cial net­work pages to plan their move­ments around the city, where a mil­i­tary se­cu­rity in­ter­ven­tion is cur­rently un­der way.

Crime-watch groups such as Basta de Vi­olên­cia (No More Vi­o­lence) and Real­i­dade do Rio de Janeiro (Re­al­ity of Rio de Janeiro) send out alerts for in­ci­dents across Rio de Janeiro state.
