Where it started
iCrimeFighter was born in 2011 when Mario had the idea of using an iPhone to collect evidence replacing traditional devices such as digital cameras, video cameras, and voice recorders. He founded iCrimeFighter with his fellow officer Jeremy and created the first iOS app - iCrimeFighter. Since then, the team and the product have grown and evolved.
iCrimeFighter is used by 300+ agencies all across the country, including accounts in MN, WI, IA, ND, NE, FL, TX and NY. Our solution also expanded from just an evidence collection app to a full evidence hosting solution that allows our partners to seamlessly collect, store and share all of their files for one low price.
