The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Tip Line program is launching an innovative new smartphone app that is designed to encourage and empower regular citizens and members of the community to safely and anonymously report crimes and suspicious activity.

Available as a free download through the App Store and Google Play, the ReportIt app allows users to share different kinds of information, report crimes and also offer suggestions to law enforcement authorities. What's great about the app is the fact that it uses geo-location technologies to make it easier for authorities to respond to pressing situations.

Just as importantly, the mobile app guarantees anonymity and confidentiality, which is important if more people are to feel comfortable reaching out to authorities to report crimes.
