Residents can now submit anonymous reports on suspicious activity through mobile app
The SafeNation app builds on the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s #SeeSomethingSaySomething concept, where members of the public can speak up to protect communities, according to the Missouri Department of Public Safety in a Facebook post.
Community members can use the SafeNation app to submit anonymous reports related to potentially suspicious activity observed, known or suspected. Reports can only be submitted to agencies listed within the app.
People can download the free SafeNation App in the Apple Store or Google Play.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has designated Sept. 25 as national “If You See Something, Say Something®” Awareness Day. The “If You See Something, Say Something®” campaign works with the department’s public and private sector partners throughout the year to educate the public on suspicious activity reporting.
By designating a day to the campaign, the department of homeland security hopes to highlight the importance of suspicious activity reporting.
