LAPD Reminds Public To Use ‘iWatch’ Website In Wake Of Boston Bombings
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The Los Angeles Police Department is reminding the public Thursday of a website designed for residents to report suspicious activity or behavior in wake of the Boston Marathon bombings.
The site, “iWATCH, iREPORT, i KEEP US SAFE”, is designed to gather tips from the public following the motto “If You See Something, Say Something”.
“This program is a community program to help your neighborhood stay safe from terrorist activities,” the LAPD states on its website. “It is a partnership between your community and the Los Angeles Police Department. We can and must work together to prevent terrorist attacks.”
The program is focused on finding those partaking in suspicious activities, including unusual interest in building security measures, unattended vehicles in no parking zones and purchasing equipment or materials that can be used to make bombs.
Anyone on the site has the option of remaining anonymous.
For more information, visit the iWatch website.
