Stop & Search App


Here it is the Immigrant X  Stop and SearchMobile App. The concept is really simple. Here is how it works:

Step 1:  Your Alert Settingsapp2

Here you choose in what range from your current location you want the  mobile app to alert you of a stop and search in progress.

As an undocumented immigrant  the stop and search poses an inherent risk to you.  This way the alert can help you prepare  and assess the danger the the stop and search poses to you and  by consequence your friends and your loved ones.

All alerts we scrutinise and we buzz first to users of the app within a few hundred metres of the stop and search to see if we can get confirmation before we publish to those requesting alerts of 1Km or more.

We will try to screen and alert within 3 minutes of a stop and search registered in the system.

The app is global so from anywhere you are in the world you can receive an alert on stop and searches in progress.



Step 2: View Stop and Searchesapp3

All you have to do is click on a map to view the stop and search in progress. When you click on my alerts:

Show My Alerts

You will be taken to your personalized alerts based on your search criteria.

Every 2 minutes our server will update the system with the latest stop and search locations reported around the globe.

You will then be able to assess the risks and your route to your destination.



Step 3: Register a Stop and Searchapp4

If you see a stop and search in progress of undocumented immigrants you can inform other by simply giving a brief description of the stop and search and the find the location with google maps.

Then save the location and description and the search will be scrutinised within 3 minutes and buzzed firstly to people in every close proximity for confirmation of the search and then it will be published to other users of the system shortly after.

We check every stop upon registration and before it is published to users. We verify stop and search locations though multiple reports on the site and crosschecking the description of searches targeting undocumented immigrants.

      Sorry we have way more users than we expected and our server is currently overloaded. We have just suspended the service. We are working on a solution and we get the App working as quickly as we can.

    Is this app actually legal are there any dangers for users of the app or yourselves? This seems somewhat pretty on the edge of what I would imagine the police and border police would tolerate.

    1. ImmigrantX says:

      We have taken legal advice before publishing the app. We are sure it is legal. The risk to users we feel is not there.
      Thanks for your concern.

        I hope it works out for you guys and you stay safe.

    Great idea guys. I still remember the SPG conducting stop & searches mob-handed. In fact the bastards would often skip the search and just stick the boot in if they didn’t like the look of you! I guess they’re more subtle now but the mindset’s the same!

    Is it legitimate to provide this type of app. it also could be danger for user coz the intelligence can identify the smart phone user easily.
