Description

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.”

Doesn’t work!

I set up a profile to register but it said I had incorrect username/PW when I tried to log in. When I tried to recover, said my phone number & email were incorrect as well. Deleted!

Good concept; not quite there on execution.

I love this concept. Tried it this past weekend and ran into a few glitches. Categories are very extreme, such as Homicide; lesser offense categories are also needed such as Suspicious Person or Vehicle. When adding location or photo details, you can't easily get back to the tip from the detail screen. Can't see tip updates; I can see that my tip has an update but can't access it. It's a bit clunky overall. I hope they smooth it out and market it like crazy, because it's an invaluable tool! Great concept!

Not sure what the point of this app is

Fishyyyyyyyyyyyyhh

I saw someone walking around my neighborhood pulling on car door handles at 2am and looking suspicious. So I thought to myself, this would be a great time to use the iWatch app and report it. So I sent in my tip and the response I got was "we do not dispatch from here, call 911"... Well then what's the point of this app? It says report suspicious behavior and things you see that might be a crime but then they say to call 911? I don't get it. On top of that the app is very glitchy and freezes a lot.
