Protecting citizens is one of the main missions of the Law Enforcement Agencies. Elderly is one of the groups most vulnerable to possible crimes and requires special protection. These 5 tips serve as preventive measures against those situations of risk that most frequently affect our elders, such as robberies or cases of disappearance.
Do not open the door of your house to strangers. Do not trust false technicians (gas, electricity...) or representatives of an official institution that come to your home unexpectedly. Confirm the visit by calling your company and do not sign any documents. You will avoid surprises as robberies!
Care where you walk: always on the inside of the sidewalk. If you carry a bag, it is better to use a handle bag and without a strap to avoid pulling. And if you are the victim of one of these pulls, do not offer resistance: you can be dragged and suffer physical damage.
Change the lock of your home if you cannot find your keys and believe that someone may have stolen them.
If you go out on the street, bring your cell phone with battery and the number phones of your relatives always recorded. If you have a relative you care about, take precautions: you must know the places where you usually walk; you must always have your mobile phone, a phonebook, your medication (if necessary) and install geolocation applications such as AlertCops.
Visit the elderly (relatives or close friends) of your environment at least once a week, and especially if they live alone: you will keep them company and you will make sure everything is in order.
One of the AlertCops icons that you will find in your start menu is the "test alert". This alert, unlike the other buttons that you will find in it, is not used to communicate a criminal act to the Security Enforcement Agencies. Here we explain what it is for.
Verify your app with this icon
The application's test alert allows you to verify if the system is working well. What does this mean? This means that when you press this icon, the app checks that your alerts are going to be processed properly. After pressing it, if everything is correct, the message that will appear in the application will be the following: "The system can process your alerts".
Is this the alert that I should press if I want to try the app? Our advice is that if you want to know how AlertCops works, do it using this icon. In this way, you will make sure that the app is operational and that it will respond satisfactorily when the time comes to use it, before a real alert or emergency. In addition, with this alert you facilitate the work of the operators that attend the alerts, thus achieving a faster and more efficient service.
What do I do if the test alert gives me an error? First, you should check that you have installed the latest version of AlertCops (4.0); otherwise, we recommend that you uninstall the previous one and download and install the new one. If the problem persists, you can contact us detailing your incidence to firstname.lastname@example.org to be able to give you a personalized and effective response.
The 'Javieradas 2019', which are held on the weekends of March 10 and 16, are celebrating their 79th edition. This popular party takes place in the town of Javier, in Navarra, in honor of San Francisco Javier and has a high participation of citizens from all over the country. The AlertCops application launches for this event a specific version: those who attend the 'Javieradas 2019' and download the application can receive geolocated security warnings if there is an emergency in the area.
A tradition with centuries of history
Javierada is the term for an event that has centuries of history. Its origin seems to date back to the 19th century. At that time, on March 4, 1886, the Provincial Council of Navarra organized a pilgrimage to the castle of Javier, symbol of this Navarra town, to venerate San Francisco Javier. The reason was the celebration of a fact: Navarra was one of the few regions that did not suffer the cholera epidemic during this year and they believed that the saint was the one who had helped them avoid it.
This anecdote is still commemorated today. Every year, in the month of March, thousands of pilgrims circulate on the roads of the town until the end of the route: the castle of Javier. A pilgrimage of more than 50 kilometers where a festive atmosphere is breathed. This year, the event also has a wide deployment of security.
As an additional tool to increase security during the 'Javieradas 2019', AlertCops incorporates a personalized alert that will remain active during all days that this event takes place and will only be displayed in the area defined for it. Through the app, users who are in Javieradas will be able to communicate any incident to the authorized security centers. In addition, they may receive informative notices to collaborate, for example, in the location of missing children in the area. Likewise, in case of an emergency, they will receive specific advice for the detected emergency. All with the objective that citizens who attend these days have a communication channel with the Law Enforcement Agencies that is quick and effective.
