Open government data powers software applications that help people make informed decisions on public safety.

While we can’t and don’t endorse specific apps, below are just a few examples of government, citizen, and business tools that: use open government data from the United States; are accessible, vetted, and available; and are, for the majority, free and do not require registration to use. Submit Public Safety application suggestions at Contact Public Safety and see more examples of applications made with open government data at Data.gov/applications.
