Delaware Launches Anti-Terrorism Mobile App

Posted: Updated:

SMYRNA, Del.- Want to help stop terrorism? There's an app for that!  People in Delaware can now use their smartphones to help protect themselves from possible threats of terrorist activity.

The Delaware Information and Analysis Center created the app. Sgt. Paul Shavack of the Delaware State Police said the app is a new tool in its force.  A user downloads the free app, and can upload pictures, write descriptions, even do it all anonymously right from a smart phone.

"The public becomes our eyes and ears and with this they can report any criminal activity they want," Shavack said. "Hopefully what it it will do is thwart crime and prevent any terrorism activity going on out there."

The app is a mobile version of DIAC's anti-terrorism phone- and Web-based reporting system. The information is all sent to the DIAC office at its undisclosed location in Dover.  It is backed by the Delaware Homeland Security advisor to keep everyone in the First State safe.
