Modernizing Public Safety

Your community is changing. We’re here to help bring your police along with it.

Relay was purpose-built to provide accessible, next-generation means for police and their neighbors to build direct relationships. We think working hand-in-hand to solve safety issues starts with knowing and seeing each other before there’s even a safety issue to be solved.

We understand that transparency and accountability are key.

We can't keep people safe if safety systems are overwhelmed.

Nobody likes getting put on hold. Especially when you're calling 911. For some communities, as many as 90% of calls to 911 are not emergencies. Relay helps offload, route, and prioritize these calls, freeing up first responders to focus where they’re needed most– on saving lives.

How are we accomplishing this?

If you're reading this, it’s likely because a city leader, police chief, or other safety official told you to look into what’s going on at Relay. We’ve been testing this system with agencies across the United States and the feedback is clear: our neighbors want more of what we’re doing.

The Relay platform allows access via a laptop, desktop, or smartphone to enable direct communication between neighbors and their nearby trained safety personnel. Users can send direct messages back and forth, agencies can broadcast important messages, and neighbors can report safety issues, which are then automatically routed to the most appropriate nearby personnel. This is technology enabling better relationships.

Your neighbors will love using Relay

It starts with the small things.

Change in any city service is difficult, so most public officials choose to do the easy thing– which is nothing. But now, Relay is the easy thing. It’s a platform that enables a community to make big changes over many small interactions, each one adding up to improvement that everyone can embrace. Relay cities are the model for others who want to leave a true legacy in their communities.

“We love having one more way for the residents of the Town to communicate with the Town Marshal. The app is easy to use. Everybody uses a cell phone today, and the Relay system helps to keep local law enforcement well-informed, increasing their ability to protect the Town.”

Maureen Burger
Council President, The Town of Williams Creek, Indiana

“Relay is such a great tool for homeowners to have a sense of security in their neighborhoods. The ease of use of the app quickly gets any non-emergency issues reported while freeing up the emergency operators to direct more urgent matters. I look forward to recommending this app to all of my real estate clients.”
