WHY IS THIS NEEDED?
No one should experience what is seen in these images, yet this is all too common.
Annually in the U.S., intimate partner violence (“IPV”) accounts for 15% to over 50% of all calls to 911 and results in nearly half of all female homicides (averaging three deaths per day!!!). Despite these atrocious facts and a significant cost of $460 billion annually, in the U.S. alone, there is currently no technology employed to combat this epidemic.
13% of all college students and over 26% of all female undergraduate students experience rape or sexual assault through physical force, violence, or incapacitation. Students frequently realize they were assaulted after the fact, especially when alcohol or drugs are involved.
SiTa's technology is designed to address these issues with consideration of privacy, technology, safety and the law.
