I’m Getting Arrested, App That Lets People Know You’ve Been Arrested

I’m Getting Arrested is a one-click notification Android app to “alert your lawyer, loved ones, etc … that you are being arrested”. Artist and technologist Jason Van Anden of Quadrant 2 was inspired to develop the app “after hearing that a Wall Street-occupying friend had come within one nightstick swing of being arrested”.

I’m Getting Arrested enables anyone, with one click, to broadcast a custom message to SMS numbers in the event they are arrested.

Inspired by a real Occupy Wall Street incident. Free to the other 99%
