Your own safety
As a helper you should always take care of your own safety and be cautious according to the circumstances. By loud shouting but also the mere presence can be done in many cases already very much.
With CrowdProtect, you can see where the other helpers are and how to deal with them. Protection of the group can reduce its risk. Also, you should try to move other nearby people to help.
Help without active intervention
As an observer and by summoning other helpers and forces, one can make a decisive contribution.
If you are physically interfering, be aware that the use of force by the police is reserved and that you can make yourself punishable with disproportionate intervention despite good intentions. Therefore, think ahead and keep a cool head.
Help after the emergency
In retrospect, it is often necessary to clarify what has happened and who bears the responsibility. Through your neutral testimony, you can make an important contribution especially in violent crime.
