PulledOver creator Aaditya Agrawal told Business Insider that he started working on it for a year

back. However, later he had a personal motivation - the black friend Agrawal was detained by the police. It turned out that the authorities had no reason to detain him, but he did not have evidence in the form of a recorded conversation.

So far, PulledOver is only available on Google Play. You do not need to create an account to start using the application. The user only needs to add emergency contacts - in case of arrest, a video of the conversation with the police and a notification will be sent to them.

If the user is stopped by the police, heshould launch the app, it will automatically start recording video. If after half an hour the user does not press the "I'm safe" button, then the video with the dialogue and geolocation will be sent to emergency contacts. If desired, the video of the conversation and detention can be automatically posted to any of the social networks.

“I constantly saw news of arrests, but I didn’tpaid attention to this. But when this happens to one of your close friends and he talks about it in detail, there is a desire to do something about it. Technology can help us with this. "

The footage can be shared withother users. However, Agrawal notes that it doesn't have to be just "negative" videos, he is confident that in this way it is possible to mark the police who are doing their job well. “If you share conversations with good cops, I hope it will inspire others to become better as well,” he notes.

The app is currently only available for Android smartphones in the Google Play store. It will be available on the AppStore by the end of the year. The app will be free, no ads will appear in it.
