Report criminal or suspicious activity with "BART Watch" App
Safety and security is our top priority. We understand that sometimes you may be the first to observe criminal or suspicious activity on BART. So what can you do to help?
BART Watch is a free mobile app for both iOS and Android that allows you to quickly and discreetly report criminal or suspicious activity directly to BART Police. Use BART Watch to send a text description of what you're seeing, attach a picture and select from a list of locations and categories to assist BART Police in their response. Reports can be anonymous. The app is also available in Spanish and Chinese.
If you're in an area without cellular connectivity, your message will be stored and delivered as soon as connectivity returns. BART Watch is designed to send text messages before pictures so that the BART Police can receive reports as quickly as possible.
BART Watch allows you to report the following:
- Illegally Parked Vehicle
- Disruptive Behavior
- Robbery / Theft
- Unattended Bag or Package
- and more..
However, for crimes in progress or emergencies, call 911, or program the BART Police Department toll-free number into your mobile phone to call quickly -- it's 877-679-7000
Together, we can make BART safer and more secure for everyone.
