BART Watch: Free Security App for Riders.
The BART Watch App offers the public a quick and discreet method for reporting suspicious activity directly to BART Police. The app can send pictures, text messages, and locations of suspicious people or activities. From the home screen, users have two easy options for contacting BART Police:
* The “Report a Problem” button allows users to send text or photos directly to BART Police. To ensure discretion, the camera flash is automatically disabled when photos are taken through the app. When reporting an issue, users can select locations and report categories to assist BART Police. Riders can also send reports anonymously if they chose.
* The “Call BART Police” button will connect customers directly to BART Police.
The application is designed for BART. If you send a report in an area without cellular connectivity, it will be stored and sent when connectivity returns. The system is also designed to send text messages before pictures so that BART Police can get app reports as quickly as possible.
BOLO (Be On the Look Out) Alerts. BOLO Alerts on the BART Watch App may display alerts from BART Police about specific persons of interest. For example, BART Watch may display information about a missing person or child, such as where they were last seen. If you see a person from a BOLO, immediately call 911 and send an app report to BART Police discreetly.

Ratings and Reviews
Quick text response, no police response
At 6 am, two passengers in the next seat were actively shooting up and one was fumbling with his sharp. I texted Bart watch, because I was afraid he had dropped his needle on the seat for another passenger to sit on.
I immediately received a response from dispatch, but no cops came. When I texted back, the dispatcher asked me if I would consider making a citizen’s arrest. I had no idea how that works and was texting BART because I was afraid to confront these people shooting up.
BART police never showed up while I was on the train. and BART ignored my request for confirmation that the police ever responded.
can’t send because no signal
why have an app when you can’t report because no signal.
San Francisco is a world class city.
Savy travelers take the train from SFO with their luggage and put up with filthy and loudly obnoxious trains.
This system is a cheaply made and maintained disgrace.
Stop giving free tickets to people who get out of jail.
London and Paris don’t have this problem!
Step up San Francisco ... Clean Up San Francisco!
