See Something, Send Something

seelogo

Earlier this year, the State of Georgia launched its participation in See Something, Send Something, a smartphone app that directs citizen concerns to local law enforcement. See Something, Send Something operates nationwide, allowing citizens to report suspicious activity and join in the fight against terrorism and criminal activity. The City of Avondale Estates is participating in this effort.

See Something, Send Something provides a platform to capture a photo of suspicious activity or send in information with written text. Information received in the app is sent directly to the Georgia Information Sharing and Analysis Center (GISAC) where the tips can be evaluated and provided to law enforcement across the state as needed. The application is available at no cost for iPhone and Android phone users, as well as iPad users.

The service, provided by My Mobile Witness Inc., uses privacy protection software to safeguard users’ personal information and the integrity of tips. The system allows citizens to engage with GISAC without tracking locations or storing any personal information. Submitted tips are immediately removed from the mobile device and purged from the My Mobile Witness system following delivery to GISAC.

This system is not intended for emergency situations. For situations requiring an immediate response, call 911.

Georgia is the 10th state to participate in See Something, Send Something. The service is already available in Alabama, Colorado, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
