Do the right thing. It's Self Evident.

Met Police Report on the Self Evident App

"Since launch Self Evident has succeeded in:

  • Becoming the leading, most practical crime reporting app on Android & Apple
  • Crucially assisting the public & Police to capture & exhibit evidence with ease
  • Saving Police time & reducing the barrier to reporting by creating a solution to the digital incapability of Police services
  • Allowing for better triaging of reports entering Police systems
  • Being recognised by the CPS as a secure & legitimate evidence provider
  • Providing Police officers evidence required to arrest & charge suspects
  • Securing convictions at court, based on evidence gathered on Self Evident"

Despite its proven value, the Met Police has said it is not prepared to help meet the costs of the App and Service, as explained here. Since this decision is now being questioned by a number of MPs we will continue to run this public service at our own expense until the Summer.  We hope public funds can then be provided to enable this public service to continue to help police officers, victims and witnesses work together to reduce crime.

While the Self Evident app was first developed as a means of cutting crime, it can also streamline work, transform routine chores, avoid misunderstandings, dissolve disputes and prove a case.

  • a data log recording  the reliability of photos, videos and audio is stored and corroborates the evidence independently
  • you can record and validate interviews and statements when the events are fresh in your mind
  • whether you to send it to your office or a client, you always have a secure copy.


You can also attach evidence recorded outside the app, e.g. on a camera, CCTV or phone. Read more...

The image below gives you an idea of what a report with validated evidence looks like when it is saved in your account or sent to a third party.  In this illustration the app is used to report on and secure validated evidence about a food safety inspection.
