At a celebratory event earlier today, Brigadier Nair of the Brooklyn SAPS and Yusuf Abramjee, Chief Ambassador of Namola, signed a partnership agreement committing collaborative efforts to ensure citizen to safety.

“To combat crime in Tshwane and across South Africa, we need all hands on deck. Partnerships like this add support and capacity to our emergency services, like the Brooklyn SAPS. Embracing innovative technology to help the way we fight crime is the way of the future for safety and security in South Africa,” Namola’s Chief Ambassador, Yusuf Abramjee.

“We are very excited about this partnership,” said Brigadier Nair of the Brooklyn SAPS, “Our officers are committed to the safety of our citizens, and we need to ensure they have the support and tools to do this work. Namola is revolutionary; giving the people of Tshwane immediate access to our police service is empowering for them, and ensures improved efficiency in our operations.”

The signing of this agreement is a milestone as the Brooklyn SAPS and Namola commit to working together to improve the safety of citizens. The partnership will further extend Brooklyn SAPS’ excellence in fighting crime by harnessing innovation in technology.

Namola is the innovative mobile application that is helping to keep the citizens of Tshwane safe. Designed to enable citizens to connect directly with crime fighting authorities, Namola is increasing the effectiveness and efficiency needed to combat crime in South Africa.

The crime fighting safety app allows users – via their GPS enabled smartphones – to share their physical location with the nearest three police emergency response vehicles and receive an immediate response. The first available officer is immediately directed to the citizen’s location while being monitored by the control room. It’s faster and it makes the task of getting help as simple as pushing a button.
