In this chapter, a method is proposed to contact the Police with mobile phones and via SMS (Short Message Service). In this method, when a person wants to contact the Police, he must only press a special key on his mobile phone for a short time to launch a special program. This program sends current location of the person using GPS system and sends it periodically with other useful information such as name, home and work address of that person automatically to the Police Station using SMS. In this method, there is no need to talk and a person can contact the Police easily and tell them the place which crime has occurred. In addition, there is no busy line problem. This method has low cost and can be run on many mobile phones This method is implemented using JavaME (Java Platform Micro Edition) programming language and tested on a Nokia N71 mobile phone by using an ‘Evermore BT-R700’ GPS receiver.
