Crime Alert App Unveiled In Cleveland

An app designed to provide users with real-time updates on potential criminal activity debuted in Cleveland. Known as Citizen, the app sends a crime alert when monitors discover illicit activity in progress. The free app operates out of an office in New York. There, individuals who once worked as journalists and first responders tune into police scanners. When they hear pertinent information, they push a crime alert to the Citizen app, alerting residents of the activity. Designed with public safety in mind, the app's former life drew criticism. Originally released as Vigilante, Apple banned the app from its store. Fears over inciting participation in crimefighting resulted in its suspension. After the failed 2016 launch, the company retooled the program and Vigilante became Citizen. Now, they focus on helping residents avoid problems in their neighborhood, rather than potentially inspire them to run towards it. The app's new branding proved successful. For example, they serve over 1 million users in ... Read More

HR Chief Resigns Amid Illegal Bonus Scandal

The human resources chief for Cuyahoga County, Douglas Dykes, resigned Monday in the latest news of a scandal surrounding his misdealings. The now former HR chief faces felony charges stemming back a year for theft. A year ago, prosecutors indicted Dykes for theft-in-office, a felony charge. Additionally, he faced other charges surrounding financial misappropriation of public funds. In one case, he provided an illegal bonus for a county official back in 2017. His misconduct came to light following a 2018 investigation into the county's IT department. Despite his indictment, Dykes remained HR chief until his resignation Monday. That position pays $180,000 as an annual salary, which is also the length of time elapsed between his indictment and resignation. Mary Louise Madigan, county spokesperson, refused to report whether or not Dykes provided a reason for his departure. However, an explanation may involve a recent payment made to the county. A $10,362 cashier's check written to the county bore the name James H ... Read More
