Explain your idea in details:
SecurIT is an application which primarily focuses on creating a Justice & Peace prevailing community with effective and accountable Institutions. SDGs targeted are #10 & #16. The application has 4 elements ; Court Cases, Police Applications & Reports, Online Protest Social Platform, and Emergency Tap. All the court cases accessible will be listed under the Court Cases section and the proceedings will be updated alongside the remarks of judges. All the Reports & Applications filed at Police Department will be listed under a different tab, and here also the proceedings will be updated. This will make people well informed of crimes being committed in their towns, and psychologically anybody planning to commit one shall fear the public embarrassment & punishment, a decrease in Minor Law Violations can be expected too. Institutions will be held accountable by the public on deliberate delays, wrong use of power, biasness, evidence of bribery / corruption, and unjustified judgments. Users can upload posts about issues they are facing which shall be highlighted on Online Protest Platform but only if Authorities arent helpful when approached. Any type of issue or case can be raised for its a public platform. Deliberate fake posts to defame a person will not be allowed. Emergency Tap will list the kind of emergencies and as soon as one of them is chosen, not only the rescuers required are issued an alert but also the active users nearby. Your neighbor may react to the alert and arrive before rescuers. This is how the sense of responsible community is infused. Application will Reduce Inequalities by letting nobody be above the law, both the Institutions & Public are encouraged to be responsible, virtuous, and law abiding. With SecurIT we aim to create a peaceful and justice prevailing society with strong & righteous institutions.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Its an innovative public application which encourages & eases the process of Peace, Justice, and Law & Order. It Reduces Inequalities through making the Institutions stronger and corruption free, such Institutions will never let anybody be above the law. The targets set are the UN Sustainable Development Goals ; Reducing Inequalities & Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions. Success can be evaluated by the decline in crime rate and minor law violation due to psychological fear of being exposed, & decrease in corruption and biasness in Institutions. Accountability of Institutions will lead to efficient outcomes, and the Cases & Reports being accessible to the public will lead to citizens being more responsible and righteous. The Emergency Tap can help to form a responsible 21st Century community unlike any other. It also helps to provide an online platform for protests although not as effective as physical protests but more convenient and capable of reaching more audience. On the long run, this will help create a Digital Justice System and even the identity and criminal record of any person can be known just through an application. It will eradicate corruption and crime without any direct use of force, leading to a more righteous, peaceful and responsible community.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
SecurIT will work as a Smartphone application, supported by Android, iOS, and Windows. The website will be accessible through web browser. Crowd Funding is the preferred source of financing.

Team will ensure that there is no breach of National Security. As the application is created in the interest of society, a public awareness campaign shall be launched. Campaign shall further be supported by above-the-line & below-the-line Social Media Advertisement and Digital & Print Media Advertisement. Digital & Print Media houses will be provided exclusive membership with seamless connection to our application server.
My name is Syed Hamza Raza, a Pakistani based in Karachi. An eighteen year old currently enrolled in Alevels / College while being an Aspiring Young Entrepreneur. Comfortable to say, I have created some pretty good creative and innovative ideas, and having also contested a few Entrepreneurial Competition being the runner up in all of them, I am aware of the competition in todays world. I work mainly on creating innovative ideas according to the opportunities available, and so far have created more than 50+ plans or ideas. Focusing one at a time, I founded a Start-Up Parent Company a few months back. Until now my team has worked on an Application to help public in decision making and an E-commerce project, both will be launched in early 2019. While working on the above mentioned projects and due to my immense interests in Politics and Governance, I found many loopholes in creating a Peaceful & Justice Prevailing Community in the 21st Century with the help of old ideas and plans and thus, came up with this application idea in respect to the opportunities in the region.
