About the Company

Our client The Cordero group, Camden police department wanted to create software called Interactive community alert network (iCAN). iCAN is a community watch program that enables the public to transmit incident reports to orient police monitored CCTV camera views toward the incident location.
The iCAN program allows the police to view what the public is reporting instantly, and the public to anonymously collaborate with the police electronically in investigating the reported incident and preventing crime more effectively than in the past.


According to the overview given by our clients and noting their requirements, we decided to develop a software solution which is for both public and the officials.

The software will be user friendly and can help the residents or public to report easily and quickly, while the reported incidents or crime can be taken into action by the officials and can be prevented from its future occurrence.

The whole software is to be created in PHP and the database is kept in MySQL.

Both the front-end and the back-end are developed in PHP.

The front-end is where the residents /public can report incidents or crimes, while the back-end is where the admin or the officials can check the reported incidents and can take actions according to CCTV camera assigned to them in their region.


Some of the important features of the software are as follow:
  • While reporting an incident, a panorama view option is given where the resident / public can select the location where the incident has taken place.
  • With the help of live camera, the officials can easily check the reported incidents immediately.
  • Resident and the official can have conversation on the portal, once the incident is reported.
  • Officials can create an alert based on any recent or past incidents for preventing its occurrence in future.
  • Helpful links can be posted on the portal by the officials for the safety of the community.
  • Blogs can be created and posted.


With developing the software and successfully delivering it to the client, the clients have been highly benefitted by it. Some of the benefits are:
  • Quicker action can be taken by the police officials.
  • The software is user friendly for the residents/ public for reporting the incidents.
  • Real time information can be received by the officials for quicker decision making.
  • While investigating the crime or incident, with the access of live camera what happened exactly before the incident took place can be noted.
  • Decrease in crime ratio can be seen.
  • It is said to be quicker mode of reporting the crime and helps preventing the future crimes.
