Child Abuse app featured in BB Apps Magazine

THE Child Abuse Reporting System (CARS) Blackberry app has been featured among one of the groundbreaking apps in the region for the June to August quarter of this year.

The app was featured in the latest issue of the BlackBerry Apps Magazine.

The CARS app was designed for free by Aranis Technologies and was a collaborative effort between the Help Ja's Children — an advocacy outlet for abused children — and Office of the Children's Registry, the entity responsible for receiving reports of child abuse in Jamaica.

It is designed to enable users to submit reports of suspected and actual cases of child abuse directly to the Office of the Children's Registry.

It was launched in July 2012 and has seen over 4000 downloads since.
