02.26.13 | Sarah Harnisch

State police launched the "See Something, Send Something" smartphone app in January, and although there aren't any statistics on the terrorism-tip app, police consider it a successful start. A State police spokesman said reviews and feedback have been positive and reported about 10 legitimate tips sent through the app. The app allows citizens to send reports of suspicious activity that could be terrorism-related. Through the app, individuals can take a photo or write a note and send it directly to the Pennsylvania Criminal Intelligence Center.The app is free for iPhone and Android users and includes help on what to look for when reporting suspicious activity, along with how to receive alerts.
