Because, aviously…

NY State government has put out an app to compliment their “See Something, Say Something” campaign.

The app, “See Something, Send Something” (further known as “SSSS”) lets you take pictures of something suspicious that you see, and submit it for the police/agencies to respond to.

My issue with the app is that it is so basic, moreso than it needs to be.

Take for example New York City’s 3-1-1 app, and the information it provides outside of its “Complaints” section.
They’ll give you a rundown of garbage pickup, alternate side of the street parking, and school closures, as well as updates to any complaints you’ve made.

The “SSSS” app needs to do more. Have it give OEM (Office of Emergency Management) notifications. Statewide alerts. Amber alerts.
Maybe just connect it to the Governer’s Twitter feed (or the aforementioned OEMs).

If you’d like to give it a try, you can find the app here.
