Duluth Launches ‘iWatchDuluth’ Mobile App Allowing Citizens to Report Crime [POLL]

The City of Duluth is bringing crime fighting into the 21st century, launching today (April 19) a new mobile application and website allowing citizens to anonymously turn in crime tips, images and videos about crimes or suspicious activity directly to law enforcement from almost any mobile phone or computer.

The app, called iWatchDuluth, allows Duluthians to send tips anonymously, securely and easily directly to law enforcement. The app is available for free now on the iTunes App Store and Google Play, and plans to add capabilities for Blackberry devices are in the works.

iWatch is part of a national social campaign to help in quickly and easily sharing tips between citizens and law enforcement. iWatch was launched in the United States in 2007 and is currently in use in 68 police and sheriff’s departments. Over 500 cities across the US are either in negotiations to build one or have started to build an iWatch system. Dallas PD Deputy Chief, Brian Harvey reported over 1,600 tips, with 1,000 actionable tips, 250 calls for service and over 70 felony arrests have been generated by iWatch tipsters in there city.
