SF News – Penn state police has developed a new Smartphone application to help it in receiving reports of suspicious activity. The application will allow Pennsylvania State residents take photos or write a note to the police directly.
The application program is called “See something, Send something” and is developed as a mobile app to send tips directly to a special police intelligence department that will evaluate it and then react to it accordingly. It is available free of charge to iPhone and Android users. It will help those with investigative minds to learn what they would need to look for and what to report.
“One tip from an alert citizen can prove valuable and protect Pennsylvania from a potential terrorist act,” says a Pennsylvania police official in a press release.
The system will not track personal information of users or their location. The tips sent to the department are immediately removed from the phone device. The information is even removed from the central data center after they are delivered to the police. That is to ensure maximum privacy.
