The Federal Government Thursday launched the Nigeria Internal Security and Public Safety Alert System (N-Alerts). The App can be found on both Android and Apple stores for now as NISPSAS.

As part of the response to the country’s security challenge, the Ministry of Interior developed an application, a technological innovation that works with the smart mobile phone or any other device with Android or IOS capability, for Nigerians to send alerts to all security agencies in real-time.

The initiative is in line with President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration’s policy of making the security of lives and property of Nigerians a priority. It is also part of the objective of leveraging Information and Communication Technology, in doing government business and operations.

The App utilizes a combination of audio-visual and geospatial location identification of the caller and scenes of incidents on the Ministry Inter-Agency Situation Room (MISR) and Command and Control Centres, Dashboards of the four Services and Police Headquarters for joint inter-agency operations.

Speaking at the unveiling of the app in Abuja, the Minister of the Interior, Rauf Aregbesola said: “You will recall that the Federal Government launched the National Economy Digital Policies and Strategy (NDEPS) under the purview of the Federal Ministry of Communication and Digital Economy (FMCDE) in 2019 with the goal of driving the digitization of the national economy sector as well as related sectors to which the security sector is one key component.

“It is to this end that the Ministry designed and is now deploying the Nigeria Internal Security and Public Safety Alert System (N-Alert) Mobile Application for joint operations and monitoring of the preparedness of the Services and the Nigeria Police. This is a tool to enable the public access real-time response to distress and emergencies in the areas of crime, fire, flood, medical ambulance services etc.”
