CrimePush

Gallaudet officials are hoping a new app will make it easier for students to report crime without having to verbally communicate. The free app, created by a Washington, DC developer, allows you to easily gather evidence for the police. Because CrimePush uses Internet service through a wifi connection instead of cell phone service, it should work in metro stations as well as on the street. It can be set to alert local police or other officials, such as university public safety officers. You can download CrimePush here. Here's a video report about it from WUSA-TV (no captioning).

It is good idea! Is this applied to Gally students only? Or it can be applied to anybody who is deaf/hard of hearing in anywhere in US?
