This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
CRIMEWATCH opens communication channels between law enforcement agencies and the public they serve. Users can browse crime related information such as arrests, fugitives, incidents and other news directly from their local/county/state authorities. You can provide tips on cases, help find fugitives, identify suspects and report other illegal activity anonymously. CRIMEWATCH partners with law enforcement and effectively routes intelligence where it needs to go. Together authorities, citizens and CRIMEWATCH can work as a team to make their neighborhoods safer and more enjoyable.

Only Harrisburg, PA Area!?
It has potential but there are problems:
1) The app description should list which U.S. States it currently covers. The way the description is written, you'd expect it to cover several states. It just covers Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Big disappointment and a waste of my time.
2) App supposedly gives you a "choice" about using your location. I answered "No". Later on, the app declares there is no information in my area! What? How does it know that without looking up my location? Why did it even ask my location if it was just going to ignore my answer? Privacy issue.
One app to inform them all!
Thanks Crimewatch and community PDs, for working together to get local crime displayed all in one place. Thanks for the ability to see who is wanted in my immediate area. I also like the ability to report something suspicious anonymously and quickly.
Finally a tool for the average citizen to help locate wanted individuals & easily report sightings without confrontation.
