Behind the code, the multidimensional analyses, and the AI, Crimer was designed to do one thing: keep people safe. It doesn’t just stop at prediction. Crimer aims to provide policemen and civilians alike with the information they need to prepare for, and ultimately prevent, crime.
Crimer isn’t a massive faceless corporation. They don’t want a monopoly, vertical or horizontal. Crimer is a small, focused team that believes in open source principles and works with a single goal in mind. Analyze, predict, inform.
Because Crimer believes that people are safest when they’re informed.
