Report incidents to DART Police more discreetly than making a phone call with the new DART Say Something Safety and Security App.
The app gives you the assurance that someone is attending to your request with its two-way communication capabilities that allow police dispatchers to request further details.
When you’re in the app, you can select the type of activity you want to report, as well as the location. You also can submit photos, videos and additional notes before hitting send report.
“Many people are afraid to call the police during a situation, but no one pays attention if you are typing on your smartphone,” DART Police Chief James Spiller said. “The DART Say Something app allows customers to send updates to dispatchers on what’s happening without being noticed. Having instant, detailed information from witnesses on the scene will help us resolve incidents faster.”
Visit the App Store or the Google Play store and download the free DART Say Something app on your iPhone or Android device.
Don’t have a smartphone? Don’t worry. Non-smartphone users can call the system’s text-a-tip service at 214-256-1819.
