The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office has released an app for the citizens to use to stay in touch and to report crime. He emphasis in his press release that this app does not take the place of the 9-1-1 emergency number and encourages people to use that number for emergencies.
According to the Sheriff the app is “designed to address the need for a quick and easy communication tool for the citizens to communicate with their Sheriff’s Office from anywhere they may be.”
The Sheriff went on to say that the app has been in development for several months and it did not cost the taxpayers any money. Monies that had been seized through drug forfeitures paid for it.
One thing that the app helps with is that it allows the app user to send photos to the Sheriff’s Office when they report a crime. The deputies have the ability to receive the photos. With that being the case, the Sheriff also reminds everyone to not put yourself in danger trying to take a photo to send.
You can download the app from your smart phones app store.
