The proliferation of computational capabilities of mobile handheld devices has made them a viable medium for carrying out a wide range of activities, involving information exchange. One new area where mobile technology is gaining great usefulness in society is crime detection and reporting. One major problem hindering crime detection and reporting is lack of efficient communication platform between the police and the general public: the general public and the police lack a common platform for exchanging real time information about criminal activities, crime suspects and those under investigation for various crimes in the society. Lack of readily accessible information of crime trends in major towns and cities is also a key setback to public security needs. In this paper, a mobile infrastructure for detecting, reporting and tracking down criminal perpetrators using a mobile device is proposed. This is based on the client-server architecture; allowing users (the general public) to exchange various categories of crime/criminal related information with law enforcement agencies in real time.
