Los Angeles-area residents who witness potential terrorist activity can now report the details to law enforcement using their smartphones.  On Thursday, the LAPD and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department unveiled a new phone app called iWATCHLA that makes filing a report as simple as a few keystrokes.  The LAPD launched its “If you see something, say something” terrorism reporting program in 2009. But until now, in an age when making phone calls increasingly takes a back seat to tapping out messages, people had to dial 911 or their local police station to report suspicious activity.
