What is Empower You?

Empower you is an app developed by NSW Police to support people experiencing domestic and family violence. It is designed for victim-survivors of domestic violence to discreetly record evidence that can be used in court.  

The app allows you to take photos and screenshots and record incidents of abuse along with the date, time and place. You can also make diary entries or notes about your experiences. These notes, photos and screenshots can be emailed to a trusted friend or the police (if you choose to do this). Your location data is used for diary entries, to provide links to local support services and for emergency text messages. The app allows you to send pre-set emergency text messages and your GPS location to a nominated contact. It can also connect you to Triple Zero in an emergency. Access to the app is protected by a passcode and it includes a quick-lock feature. 

Apps: Android app, Apple iOS app
