I actually write some of the incident reports you see in Citizen app.

They recently made their police scanner platform available to the public if you wanna follow for yourself or send out your own Citizen alert.

I use the app and it is surprising how much doesn't make the news. I've seen car chases, robberies, carjackings, assaults with weapons etc that you would assume would be reported on eventually that never do.

At least part of the problem is JC seems to cherry pick what crimes to give information on. I believe this is done on purpose to give a perception their is less crime then their really is.

On the local news, I've been seeing videos with the words "citizen app" on it. It is an app that shows police incidents in the area. On the app, I see incidents that are not on the news. But the news also have incidents not shown on the app.

Here are two not in the news:

1. Theft from CVS
12/15 - 88 Morgan St
12/15 6:28 pm Police are responding to a report of three shoplifters
12/15 6:28 pm Incident reported at 88 Morgan St.

2. Strong-Arm Robbery
12/19 - 400 Marin Blvd
12/19 11:36 am Officers are on the scene and are interviewing the victim while canvassing the area.
12/19 11:30 am Multiple officers are responding to calls of a man that was robbed by a group of three men in front of the shoprite that then fled on foot.
12/19 11:30 am Incident reported at 400 Marin Blvd.
