This paper presents an auditory Android mobile application called Resqku for emergency situation. The Resqku mobile application serves as a notification tool to produce high frequency noise to distract crime suspects by using a single emergency alert button. The research work is motivated by the desire to curb the alarming increase of street crimes in densely populated district. A pilot study was conducted in places of high incidents of street crimes by interviewing civilians and law enforcement body such as the police.
