11 Mar 2016
Yahoo News, 10 Mar 2016 - Article featured the “SPCA Rescue” app developed by five students from SP’s Diploma in Business Information Technology students. The app allows users to report incidents of animal injury and aims to increase the efficiency of animal rescue. The app, which is being developed in partnership with Singapore Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), was among 220 final-year student projects featured at the SP Project Showcase 2016. SPCA has given feedback to the students for further improvements to the app and is considering to make the app available to the public soon. Article also featured another SP final-year student project – the “Call Police” app which was developed in partnership with the Singapore Police Force (SPF). It lets a user disseminate relevant details to the authorities about a potential crime being committed through the push of a button. The app can also trigger a shrill alarm to thwart any perpetrator of a crime. The “Call Police” app has won an award at a competition organised by the Ministry of Home Affairs.
