iPhone users, have you tried the “Police” feature? Made in 2018 by Robert Peterson, the shortcut allows iPhones to monitor police-civilian interactions.
Peterson told Business Insider the shortcut can be used as the civilian equivalent of a police body camera. The shortcut can easily be voice activated by a phrase directed to your smart device such as, “Siri, I’m getting pulled over.”
Once you install the “Police” shortcut, the programmed command will stop any music or sound currently playing, convert into “Do Not Disturb” mode and immediately the iPhone screen lighting. Note: ‘untrusted shortcuts’ must be activated under settings to allow the shortcut to be created. Following the activation of the feature, your iPhone will then begin to record using the front-facing camera and send a text to a predetermined contact. One recording has stopped, the file can also be saved.
