non-custodial parents and most-wanted criminals.
The Sheriff’s Office will also be able to send news and
alerts directly to users’ smartphones – notifying them about anything from
bank robberies and missing persons to
escapes, weather warnings and more.

to people’s fingertips,” said Sheriff Riles. “The app greatly improves our
ability to serve the public, and that’s
what we’re here for. We’re thrilled that we can provide this to the
community free of charge.” The app is
also fully integrated with the county’s victim notification service, VINE
(Victim Information and Notification

getting the information they need from their cell

the public informed.”
