iPhone Introduces “Police” Shortcut That Records Police Interactions And Informs A Predetermined Contact When A User Gets Pulled Over

Blogged By: @carmen.roxanna

The iPhone is getting the update we’ve all been waiting for and didn’t even know it! There’s a new shortcut called “Police” and it monitors police interactions so you have a record of what happened.

Robert Petersen of Arizona created the shortcut with public safety in mind. “It seemed to me that if you’re getting pulled over it couldn’t hurt to have a recording of the incident. The police these days in many places have body cams, so this could be the civilian equivalent.”

Petersen proved you don’t have to be a programmer to create your own shortcut. “The platform has a lot of potential, and if you read the Apple user guides and consult with others on forums, or just look at how other people’s shortcuts work and ‘reverse engineer’ them to your own needs, you can learn a lot quickly,” he said.

The #Police shortcut sends a quick text to a contact you predetermine to tell them you’ve been pulled over and it starts recording using the iPhone’s front-facing camera. Once you’ve stopped recording, it can text or email the video to a different predetermined contact and save it to Dropbox. Amazing!

You can download the “Police” shortcut here but make sure you have the Shortcuts app installed.
