The Centre for Law Enforcement Education (CLEEN) Foundation on Thursday has taken a step towards depeening the country’s two decades of uninterrupted democracy as it launched a mobile application for the effective monitoring and documentation human rights abuses and other related events.
The mobile application which is known as ‘CLEEN Mobile’ was hugely supported by the United Kingdom government, it stated this in a press release.
The application, which is currently on the Google play store would enable users to easily document human rights violations, corruption, and conduct of security personnel in enforcement of government’s directives.
Users of the app would be able to document activities of security agents deployed for COVID-19 policing duties throughout the country, the conduct of security officers deployed for election security management in Edo and Ondo States and collection of data on other projects of CLEEN Foundation. It is synchronised to work with either high or low internet connectivity in the country.
“The Mobile application enables data collection through structured forms with capabilities of attaching photo, video, and audio files. All of the content and data stored in the application are encrypted. The data remain inaccessible unless the application is unlocked thereby providing several layers of security for users.
“In the settings of the CLEEN Mobile application, users canactivate “Verification Mode”. When activated, every time a user takes a photo or a video, or records audio, the application automatically capture metadata (data about the file). This metadata can be used to corroborate evidence, cross check with other facts known about the event or about the area where it was captured thereby limiting the upload and usage of fake pictures and videos on the platform,” it stated.
