Report: New app alerts of fugitives

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A new smartphone app designed to keep children safe is a first of its kind in U.S. federal law enforcement.

The "Operation Predator App" sends out alerts about the latest fugitive who ICE and Homeland Security are looking for, or the latest one to be caught.

Within the app, there are also photos and information about known fugitives.

At the touch of a button, tips may be submitted anonymously through the app, but they can also be submitted by phone or online.

The app is available at the Apple App Store and is free to the public.
