SMS Alert Service for Dutch Police
Emexus, a global mobile services company, provided the Netherlands police force with a special alert system which uses SMS mobile technology to improve local security and provide a communication system for alarming local residents in case of a crisis.
After a very successful pilot in Tilburg, the Dutch police force is now ready to roll out the service to the rest of the Netherlands, starting in Rotterdam and Amsterdam. The SMS alert system allows local residents to subscribe according to their zip code, and receive SMS text alerts from the police regarding activity in their community. [via Press release]
