If You See Something, Say Something Mobile Reporting App

Virginia 3rd State in Nation to Launch Safety Mobile Application 

The See Something, Send Something mobile reporting app enables suspicious, criminal activity to be captured as a photo or written note and sent to the Virginia State Police.

The application, which can be downloaded at no cost for iPhone and Android phone users, also includes information on what to look for and when to report suspicious activity. The app does not replace 9-1-1 and should not to be used for someone needing immediate police action or to report an emergency.

The app provider, My Mobile Witness, uses patent-pending privacy protection software for safeguarding the integrity of tips and citizens’ personal information. The system allows law enforcement to engage citizens without tracking one’s location or storing personal information.

Submitted tips are immediately removed from the mobile device and purged from the My Mobile Witness system once delivered to the Virginia State Police for analysis.
