Acadian Shield is a personal safety app that enables citizens to be proactive in their safety by bridging the gap between doing nothing and calling 911 in an unsafe situation. By holding down the Acadian Shield button, a user is able to passively connect to police. If nothing unexpected happens, a user simply inputs their unique 4-digit pin to cancel an alert from being sent (to police). If a situation takes a turn for the worse, a user simply releases the safe button without typing in their pin number and is connected to police.
Acadian Shield can only be used if you have a subscription. To help make sure Acadian Shield is right for you, all subscriptions have a 7 day free trial period. 1-month subscriptions to Acadian Shield start at $1.99. Payment will be charged to your iTunes account at confirmation of purchase, and will automatically renew unless you cancel your account at least 24 hours before the end of the current subscription month. Subscriptions may be managed by the user and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to the user's Account Settings after purchase. No cancellation of the current subscription is allowed during active subscription period.
Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Acadian Shield will only use your GPS location in the background if you have an active alert.
