[prMac.com] Rancho Santa Margarita, California - Bowers Technologies, Inc. has released iWatch USA 1.0, their new threat awareness and prevention application for iPhone and iPod Touch. Designed specifically to leverage the iPhone's unique capabilities, iWatch USA serves to empower citizens to help make their community safe from potential terrorist activities.
Since 9/11, it is essential that communities work together to prevent future attacks. By cultivating an awareness of their surroundings, community members can help law enforcement officials predict and prevent attacks before they happen. iWatch USA is based on the successful iWatch community program recently launched in Los Angeles, California.
It's important to know some of the real life examples of suspicious activities that saved lives because they were reported by concerned individuals:
* A video store clerk saw anti-American material on a DVD he was asked to copy. Police captured and arrested individuals planning a bomb attack.
* A grandmother smelled bad odors from an empty, neighboring apartment and noticed that the dwelling was frequented by various people. Police discovered a poison gas factory.
* Residents were concerned by an individual's threats of violence. Police captured and arrested a group planning a subway attack.
iWatch USA places emphasis on the activity or behavior itself, and not the individual. The application identifies nine different types of suspicious behavior and activities, offers a handy checklist of items to provide law enforcement officials as well as helps determine the appropriate law enforcement entity to contact.
