The Cook County Sheriff’s department wants to enlist you and your smartphone as deputies.
Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart unveiled a new app called iWatch Cook County that lets citizens provide information about crimes anonymously using encrypted technology.
It’s a huge breakthrough for law enforcement that could help police in the Chicago area break through the so-called “code of silence.”
While the free app is now available for iPhones it is not yet available for Android phones.
