Baltimore Police Initiate "iWatch" Snoop Program

Citizen Snoop meets Citizen Snitch in Baltimore. The Baltimore Police have initiated a program called iWatch in which it asks citizens to text or send videos and photos of suspicious behavior. The site is monitored 24/7.

Citizens are encouraged to report activity that just does not fit. You can now use our web tips form to submit a tip or report suspicious activity to police. Information can be sent from your cell phone, hand-held device, or computer 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Tips can also be e-mailed.
