“The SaferWatch application allows you to report non-emergencies and suspicious activity and submit anonymous tips directly to the Broward Sheriff’s Office,” Sheriff Scott Israel said. “This is a valuable tool for everyone, but our initial goal is to have students and school staff download the app and report suspicious behavior and activities. With your help, we can make our schools and community even safer.”
The app can be easily downloaded from the App Store or Google Play. Users can select any schools within Broward County. The tips are sent to BSO’s Criminal Investigations Division for processing. Tips received that fall outside of BSO’s jurisdiction will be routed to the appropriate agency. Alerts and safety instructions may be sent to any geo-fenced school or area. The app does not replace 911. For emergencies, always dial 911.
