This study is aimed to propose an emergency framework with the development of an auditory android mobile application with location-based service called MyAngel. MyAngel app serves the functionality as a location based notification tool and annoyance producer by the high frequency noise for attention distraction purpose by using only a single emergency alert button. Due to the steep increment of crime rate especially on the robberies, the outlook of the country is grim and the number of innocent victim is also increasing. Thus, this study is addressing the problem on difficulty in getting immediate assistance from the outsiders as well as the insufficient self-defense techniques of the robbery victim to fight against the robbers with or without firearms. To develop the MyAngel app, several methodologies have been conducted. The high frequency noise and location based services (LBS) related data have been collected through online sources and further analysis on the information gathered have been performed through literature survey. Besides, pre-survey questionnaires were conducted to the citizens in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur to understand their opinions on the robbery issues. The interview session was also being carried out with one of the robbery victim to understand the victim‟s needs during emergencies. In addition, another interview session was done with the Operational Inspector in Selangor to investigate if the noise criterion has been considered and proposed within the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM). The results indicate that all the survey respondents and interviewed robbery victim agreed with the increase of robbery rate and they had showed their demand on the development of MyAngel mobile application. Moreover, the noise concept has not been adopted in PDRM yet. Thus, it will be included in MyAngel app as one of the main functions which will be integrated with the function of LBS to meet the requirement of the users.
