iWatch Dallas




    iWatch Dallas puts crime tipping and crime reporting into the palm of your hand, allowing individuals to get crime information and submit crime tips to law enforcement on their cell phones or PDAs. It is provided free of charge by the Dallas Police Department, and helps citizens support the Department of Homeland Security agenda, See Something, Say Something.

    iWatch Dallas was established to raise awareness for crime prevention, generate public support for local crime fighting efforts and deepen the relationship between law enforcement and communities.

    By simply clicking on the iWatch Dallas appn icon on their smartphone (which is free to download), a citizen or visitor can submit a tip. The mobile app allows individuals to report on crimes they have seen or as they happen. The system allows the user to upload text messages, static images or video for review by law enforcement, including pictures of criminals and criminal activity so that law enforcement can have even greater detail from the tipster.

    The system now supports 32 languages, so anyone can report a tip, regardless of dialect. You can also receive alerts from the department for crime assistance, events, public safety notices and more.

    With the click of a button, an individual can submit an anonymous text tip, an email, or a detailed form as they travel from street to street and from neighborhood to neighborhood in real time. If an individual has information, photos or videos relating to a reported crime, they can send it to law enforcement just as easily from their handheld device or from their PC.

    Tipsters can either provide information anonymously or disclose their own identity. “iWatch puts incredible power back in the hands of the public to help stop crime. Now the Dallas Police Department can enable merchants, schools, groups, neighborhoods and individuals have a way to actually assist in crime solving by providing information directly to law enforcement, whether it’s after the fact or even if it’s happening right now.”

    The app no longer works. The new Capcha validation always indicates wrong entry. It will no longer allow to send tips.

    Almost unusably laggy interface. Stale data.

    Uninstalled after one day. It just kept spinning and spinning. No amount of rebooting the app and/or phone would make it function. I can still telephone 911.
