Similar to “See Something, Say Something,” the SaferWatch mobile app encourages users to “See Something, Send Something”. Tipsters who wish to be contacted will be informed that their information was received. The app also allows users to provide information anonymously. While not exclusively for use at schools, the app allows students, parents and teachers the ability to subscribe and receive alerts from a school’s location. The two-way communication system also allows users to receive emergency and non-emergency alerts from BSO in real time. Visit www.BrowardAlerts.com for more details or to download the app.
