The app, called SafetyNet, is a service for people who are worried about their safety after a cellphone accident.
Users are able to enter their phone number and email and receive a text or phone call to alert them if they have been in an accident and get a crash report from the police.
It has been tested on several million people, and it is proving to be a popular and successful service.
The app has also been endorsed by the Australian Federal Police.
“We’re very excited about the SafetyNet app for those of us who have been involved in a cellphone collision,” NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione said.
“There are so many reasons why we’d like to be able to help those who are affected by a collision.”
The app’s creator, Dr James Atherton, says the app has been downloaded over 400,000 times since its launch in October.
“I think the app is going to do something important,” he said.
The NSW Police Association has said that if you are using a smartphone or tablet and you’re not sure about what to do, contact the app’s support team.
“If you’ve been injured or killed in a car accident and you want to make sure you’re in safe hands, contact our support team and they’ll help you get your case heard by a trained and qualified person who can help you through the process,” Mr Scipion said.
