Ministry of Security and Justice

The Ministry of Security and Justice is responsible for maintaining the rule of law in the Netherlands, so that people can live together in freedom, regardless of their life-style or views. The activities of the Ministry have broad societal impact. One of the objectives of the Ministry’s communication strategy is to make information available to the widest possible audience. Mobile devices play an important role in this strategy.


The Ministry of Security and Justice needed to provide a central point where citizens and professionals could gain access to current and popular information relating to the Ministry’s activities anytime anywhere. A mobile app was the logical choice to satisfy this need. The app must comunicate the diverse and social importance of the Ministry. The app should communicate how the Ministry contributes to creating a safe and honest society.


Sharewire was responsible for development of the concept, design, development and marketing of the app. Sharewire chose to implement a hybrid mobile application. The app contains news, social media channels, information relevant to Security and Justice and answers to frequently asked questions along with the contact information of more than a thousand organisations that are active within the domain of Security and Justice. When using the app, it is possible to navigate from your current location to any of these organisations using a map.


The app is available for smartphones and tablet devices on both the Apple and Android platforms. This caters for more than two thirds of the mobile market in The Netherlands. This free app has an average rating of 4.5 in the app stores.
