CLEVELAND — The Regional Transit Authority has introduced a free app that allows customers to communicate with police.

Those who download the iWatch RTA app will be able to send text, emails, photos, and video to Transit Police anonymously.

Those who do not have a smartphone can also call or text the non-urgent Transit Police line at (216) 575-3937. Police will follow up on any tips as quickly as possible.

The free iWatch RTA app is available on iPhone and Droid.
