State Police Launch Smartphone App
The Pennsylvania State Police have launched a new smartphone application named "See Something, Send Something." It allows suspicious activity to be captured as a photo or written note and sent to the Pennsylvania Criminal Intelligence Center (PaCIC). The application is available at no cost for iPhone and Android users and includes information on what to look for and when to report suspicious activity, along with how to receive important alerts. The application was developed by My Mobile Witness and utilizes patent-pending privacy protection software for safeguarding the integrity of tips and citizens' personal information. Submitted tips are immediately removed from the mobile device and purged from the My Mobile Witness system once delivered to PaCIC for analysis. The application can be downloaded by scanning the QR code on the left, searching for "See Send" in the app store, or clicking this link for the Android Play Store.
