SA Police’s new Traffic Watch app


SA Police recently launched the new Traffic Watch mobile app.  The Traffic Watch app allows members of the public to easily report poor driving behaviour and traffic related complaints using a mobile phone, tablet or computer.

The information captured through Traffic Watch will help make our roads safer by assisting police to:

  • Determine the future allocation of resources including the deployment of highway and metropolitan motorcycle and vehicle patrols, safety cameras and the Traffic Tactical Unit.
  • Identify locations for drug and alcohol testing.

You are encouraged to use the Traffic Watch app to report non-urgent traffic related incidents that don’t require police attendance. Please call Triple Zero (000) if it is in an emergency or 131 444 for non-urgent police assistance.

The Traffic Watch app can be found within the SA Police mobile app which is a portal for important SAPOL services and information.  In addition to Traffic Watch, the SA Police mobile app:

  • Can initiate a call to Emergency Triple Zero (000).
  • Can open a call to the Police Assistance Line 131 444.
  • Allows users to report suspicious behaviour via the Crime Stoppers icon.
  • Enables you to stay in touch with SA Police News and other information released on SAPOL’s website and social media platforms.
  • Can display the police stations and traffic camera sites near your location.
  • Allows you to check the status of your Police Incident Report through the Track My Crime icon.
  • Includes some information on youth safety.

The SA Police mobile app is a free download for Android (versions 4.4 and higher) and iPhone (iOS 10 and higher) users.
