iWatchTexas App

The Texas Suspicious Activity Reporting Network iWatchTexas app enables community members to report suspicious activities or behaviors in an intuitive and confidential manner directly to proper authorities. Incident reports submitted through the app are received by designated Law Enforcement personnel for analysis and investigation, where warranted. Texans can play an important role in preventing tragedies and potentially saving lives by reporting criminal, terroristic or school safety-related threats.

Newly added to the iWatchTexas app for the start of the school year is the ability for students, teachers, administrators, and others to report incidents related to school safety concerns. Once you install and launch the app, simply choose whether the incident you are reporting is related to school safety and follow the prompts to enter information and submit your report. We encourage you to report any concerns you may have related to potential threats to the safety and security of any school, student or faculty member in the state of Texas.
