The iWitness app turns smartphones into virtual witnesses – recording video and audio evidence of any incident and sending it encrypted to the cloud. At the tap of a finger, it also dials 911, sounds an alarm, and instantly tells you and other pre-selected trusted contacts your child’s exact location and to call them immediately.

A one-year iWitness subscription is now available to WSPTA members and their families for just $14.95 per person – a full 50% off the regular price. Use promo code: WSPTA1410. Offer good through October 1, 2014. To order, or for more information, click here.
