Bulgarian blogger Boyan Yurukov has set up Bulgaria's first Ushahidi-based site, Crime.bg, whose goal is to collect signals of crimes and irregularities, via the site itself as well as through mobile applications, Twitter and Facebook. On his blog, Yurukov explained the reasons [bg] for creating Crime.bg: “1. People's lack of trust in police; and 2. Lack of open public data on crime rates in Bulgaria.” Crime.bg has inspired other activists in Bulgaria to use Ushahidi: e.g., Izboren Kodeks (“Election Code”), a web initiative to track violations in the electoral process.
