There is now an app for people in suburban Dolton who want to report a crime.

Dolton's mayor and police chief showed off the "I alert U" smartphone application.

It can be used to anonymously report suspicious activity, car accidents or crimes in real-time.

Dolton is the only municipality in the nation taking part in a pilot program to test the technology.
