“See something Say something” for smartphones

The SEPTA Transit Watch App offers the public a quick and discreet method for reporting suspicious activity directly to the police. The app can send pictures, text messages, and locations of suspicious people or activities. From the home screen, users have two easy options for contacting the SEPTA transit police:

* The “Report a Problem” button allows users to send text or photos directly to the SEPTA Transit Police. To ensure discretion, the camera flash is automatically disabled when photos are taken through the app. When reporting an issue, users can select locations and report categories to assist the SEPTA Transit Police. Riders can also send reports anonymously if they chose.

* The “Call SEPTA Police” button will connect customers directly to the SEPTA Transit Police.

The application is designed for SEPTA. If you send a report in an area without cellular connectivity, it will be stored and sent when connectivity returns. The system is also designed to send text messages before pictures so that the SEPTA Transit Police can get app reports as quickly as possible.

Additional Features

BOLO (Be On the Look Out) Alerts. BOLO Alerts on the app may display alerts from SEPTA Transit Police about specific persons of interest. For example, the app may display information about a missing person or child, such as where they were last seen. If you see a person from a BOLO, immediately call 911 and send an app report to SEPTA Transit Police discreetly.

Good needed app

Good app for reporting various issues on Septa vehicles and stations. I usually get a response if I post without selecting Anonymous. When reporting an issue on a vehicle, make sure to state which direction it’s heading.

Improvements Needed

After selecting the location (MFL or BSL), you should be able to select “On a Northbound Train” or “On a Southbound Train.” It doesn’t make sense to select 2nd Street, for example, when the train is moving and you might not press Send until you’re at Girard (and who knows when the report would be read). Better signage is needed inside El cars so we can know our train # and car #. Once you submit the report, no follow up occurs, so it’s hard to know if you’re actually helping. Please improve the app, or put resources into improving safety on the El.

u don't want my revuew ,


Direction of train is important to ask So the officers know where the train is headed and often the train left the station that was just typed in ! Regular announcements about nit smoking might be helpful and if someone it identified as violating then there should be a consequence to discourage it in future . Thank You ! Smoking makes me sick !!
