Virginia State Police are giving people a new way to report crime or suspicious activity in the area.

VSP has launched a new app called "See Something, Send Something".

It allows residents to send in tips for suspicious or criminal activity by sending a picture or a note using their smart-phone.

The tip will then be sent to police for further review.

The app also provides tips on what to look for and when to send in a tip.

"See Something, Send Something" is available for free for iPhone and Android users.

Police say it does not replace  911 services and should not be used during an emergency.
