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.

Additional Features

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.

It makes NO DIFFERENCE sometimes, other times it does


I have had luck with this app where police show up when there is a problem reported. The weird thing about them showing up is they announce once they arrive to the train "did somebody call for police assistance? ". Well, I hate to break it to you but sometimes people don't want to be outed like that, especially when they're reporting disruptive behavior or a crime in progress. Another time, I reported massive amounts of drug use (with video), I got no response and I'm sure nothing happened. The app in theory, is a good idea but in reality people on the other end actually need to respond for it to work.
