Sheriff Tony Mancuso announced the launch of a new cell phone app, CloseWatch Calcasieu. The new app provides easy, yet anonymous ways to send in tips to CPSO deputies on suspicious activities heard or seen. You can send tips about schools or locations that seem questionable.

However, please keep the Karens away, as this should not be a tool that is abused for all of the wrong reasons. With the fake calls and tips being sent around the world, this is only to be used in those moments when you are sure or truly have notion that there are some illegal activities going on.

While submitting tips, you will remain anonymous and your tips will go immediately to the CPSO real-time Crime Center. The deputies will take steps to ensure the tip is investigated.

Remember also that the CloseWatch Calcasieu app doesn't replace 911, as this is still for emergencies.
