About this app

Watch for suspicious or missing persons, receive AMBER Alerts and help make your neighborhood safer. Use of the Burgernet app is free and anonymous.

Almost 4 out of 10 Burgernet actions are solved thanks to tips from participants. The more people participate, the greater the chance that something or someone will be found.

How Burgernet works
Burgernet is used in cases such as theft or burglary, driving on after a collision, robbery, and missing persons. You will receive an action message via the Burgernet app when something like this happens in your area. Seen something? Then you can contact the police directly via the app.

Amber Alert
You will also receive AMBER Alerts via the Burgernet app when a missing child is in mortal danger. You can recognize an AMBER Alert by the orange color and the title AMBER Alert.

About the app
The app uses your smartphone's location to send you messages about nearby actions. Even when you are away from home. Participation is anonymous, your data or location will not be tracked.

Does not work. Get notifications from areas far away. Crashes and immediately closes the app if opened through a notification. Manually loading messages by selecting an area fails connection.

Keeps asking for location information, it is far more privacy invasive as the SMS solution they used to support. Also it keeps saying my address doenst exist. I will be a good citizen some other way, but I am opting out of this program.

Edit, looks like this has been resolved. Defaults my location now to another city and I can't update. I live in Beek not Beek en Donk.
