The Marion Police Department in Virginia is now encouraging residents to report crime through a new app the department launched.
Called iWatch Marion, the free app supposedly gives citizens “an easy method to report potential crimes.”
Lt. Andrew Moss tells The Bristol Herald Courier that residents are able to report crimes and suspicious activities to authorities. Residents can even send photos and videos. In addition, users can sign up for text alerts, including weather reports, school closings, missing children, and more.
