FARMVILLE — In conjunction with Virginia State Police, the Farmville Police Department is urging residents to download a free phone app to report suspicious activity in advance of the vice presidential debate at Longwood University on Oct. 4.

“While most people’s daily activities should not be affected in any significant way, citizens can expect to see an increase in visitors and traffic,” police said in a press release. “The Farmville Police Department is diligently working with multiple local, state and federal partners to keep our community safe and secure during this event.”

“We want to remind our residents that they are empowered to protect their families, neighbors and community by recognizing and reporting suspicious activity,” said Acting Police Chief A.Q. “Andy” Ellington. Anyone can download the free app by searching “See Send” on their phone via their app store. Once the app is downloaded, users can report anything suspicious via text or by sending an image.
