Citizen’s real-time safety alerts remain free and accessible to all.

New Features Under Citizen Plus

Available for the first time ever, Citizen Plus unlocks the powerful ability to:

Listen to police and fire radios: Discover an extra level of detail by hearing real-time communications between emergency responders as incidents unfold.

Customize your alerts: Customize the types of alerts you want to receive and set your preferred alert distances. Select the categories most relevant to your safety needs such as, nearby fires, residential burglaries, active shooters, and more.

Unlock past incidents: Access a deep historical record of all past incidents. Prior to Citizen Plus, incidents would expire from the app after 24 hours. Now, simply zoom into the map to see the details of incidents that happened in the past and keep up with safety in your city or across the country.

Create alert zones: Monitor multiple locations like your home, children’s school, or any place you care about. Receive alerts for these areas, even when you’re away.

Citizen Plus is available now on the latest version of the Citizen iOS App Store. For more information, visit
