Normal topicSafeland (formerly Trygve) community collaboration site

Grange Association recommends Safeland, the first fully collaborative safety app.

(Forgive some of this being in Swedish)

If we made more use of this as a community, someone could instantly report a break-in, vandalism or car theft and others' smartphones would alert neighbours immediately. This would be at a level above our successful Whatsapp groups, Neighbourhood Watch groups etc ... and be available information to anyone registered.

I think it's time to "promote" Safeland again, after the burglaries of the other night !

There are three levels of groups (communities) :

Public Group :
In a public group "anyone can join and it will show up in search results" - we have Edinburgh EH9

Locked Group :
In a locked group "everyone can find and request to join the group, but requires an approval from a group administrator" - we have Grange Association Area (Edinburgh)

Private Group :
A private group "will never be visible in search results and users will need an invitation from a group administrator in order to join the group" - there is at least one in our area, but … can't tell you what it is as it's private !

(we can be fortunate at times that there is "nothing to report" in our area - whereas there probably are things happening .. just to let you see what the Safeland map looks like, populated, here is an example screenshot)

Very interesting podcast with Per Källgården (CEO and founder of Safeland / Trygve) – Turbo charging neighbourhood watch for the 21st century with Safeland

Per Källgården is the CEO and co-founder of Safeland. Safeland is the UK’s first fully collaborative safety app. It’s an app for neighbourhood watch and care with the goal of everyone being able to get help within 3 minutes.

Listen to find out:

    Why Per was concerned about his wife’s safety and why this inspired him to found Safeland

    How Safeland brings people and communities closer together

    How Safeland works with your domestic alarm to give you greater security for the neighbourhood

    How the 3 minute rule for safety works in practice

    How the service could benefit more than community security

    Why your kids are the best judge of whether your work is meaningful

    Why commercial success is essential for purpose driven businesses

    Why the company values reflect the Safeland community values

    How traditional social media creates anxiety around home safety and security.

It's worth a listen if you're interested - or unsure - about Safeland.
