StreetCred aggregates information from the court and the agency, and from a wide range of other law enforcement and open sources. We normalize and correlate it, running it through a series of parallel algorithms that are proprietary and unique to StreetCred. StreetCred then securely displays, on the MDT or on approved mobile devices a score which indicates the likelihood that officers will locate the fugitive at the address in StreetCred’s system, and, when they do, the fugitive will be able to pay the fines and fees associated with the warrant.489 votes

Turns out it’s a win-win for both the agency AND the requester. If you make it easier to respond, the response quality and speed both go up. The inherent transparency of the application and all of its transactions are lagniappe.

CityVoice: A call-in system for gathering, sharing, and understanding place-based community feedback
CityVoice makes giving community feedback quick, easy and accessible, and turns that feedback into actionable information.

OpenBudgetoakland.com is a municipal budget transparency and discussion app. Conceived at a hackathon, we offered to help incubate and support the completion of this game changing app. It required the city to release the raw budget in a raw data format for the first time ever – a serious change in attitude from a city hall frequently seen as closed and uncooperative. In releasing this data, the city enabled the development of an incredibly powerful application that would never have been conceived of nor built in city hall. Our team has learned a lot through the launch of this app…22 votes
