Govia: The Police Safety App
Where are you based?Cleveland, OH, USA
What specific justice problem are you committed to solving?
GS3 Inc. proposes an integrated technology application that will prevent civil rights abuse(s) and provide due process of law for anyone who is unjustly detained or stopped by law enforcement. This community ‘app’ called Govia simultaneously will improve police job performance in tandem with the community, better protect police officers as well, and provide new employment opportunities for others who wish to promote the common good of our society.
Until the Govia came along, customers didn’t realize they needed an attorney and health counselors during police interactions with the community —but Govia effectively created a new demand to help our societal epidemic for law and order.
What is your solution?
Govia construction is based on ideas and concepts needed to understand the community needs and the police force responds to a system of law and order. Govia’s products are to provide a safety net of accountabilities from both parties; the apps and its components are to inform each other measures and procedures using the latest technologies. The App provides law and order to and for each end user by a rating system, but also sharing information to assist police to feeling safety. The community also wishes to feel safe so we try to ensure the police officer(s) will be accountability for actions by video, police report, and customer review in the moments of stop or ticket. Govia addresses a specific agenda from police profiling, police brutality, police shooting and unjust stops. Our mission is to create an environment for both parties to have a safe encounter. We start with education and teaching the community and the police how to work the app but also what to do by classes and exams. Our program objectives is to bring in health care providers, attorneys and many resources through technology to guide our end users to having a better dialogue between the epidemic in our society. Govia is best used by each party to bring down the tension by learned de-escalation skills by end users. But also from Govia’s support staff and paralegals watching every call from the sky.
How could your solution positively change lives if it was scaled nationally?
Black, brown and poor whites are my customer segment who make under 20k that range from 15-26 year olds. Whom have more encounters with the police. But not limited to because parents, guardian and grandparents have expressed extreme interest in supporting for their safety. Predominately, males with or without mental health issues are my target market. We could protect the lives of the community nationally as well as police officers whom find themselves under attack in today’s society. This would radically reduce the tensions between these groups in order to have law and order and accountability between both parties.

Are you seeking additional team members? If so, what are you looking for in terms of background, skills, and expertise?
Chief Executive Officer (CEO). The fact of the matter is, the CEO is the boss of everyone and is responsible for everything. They determine the company's strategy. They hire and build the senior team
The CEO's skills must include strategic thinking, the ability to rise above the daily details and decide where the industry and business are headed. They must then be able to decide the company's best route for navigating the future market conditions. They have to be able to make good bets.
Chief Operating Officer (COO). A COO handles a company's complex operational details. The company's COO insures the business can deliver day after day. He/she figures out just what needs to be measured so he can tell if things are going well. Then his team creates the systems to track the measurements and takes action when the company isn't delivering.
Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Plain and simple, your CFO handles the money. They create budgets and financing strategies.
Chief Marketing Officer (CMO). The CMO owns the marketing strategy--and that often includes the sales strategy--and oversees its implementation. The CMO will know (or learn) your industry inside out and helps you position your product, differentiate it from your competitors' products, enlist distributors, and make sure customers learn to crave your product.
Chief Technology Officer (CTO). A CTO should keep up with technology trends, integrate those trends into the company's strategy, and make sure the company keeps current when its necessary.
