LCSD adds mobile app
The Lawrence County Sheriff's Department has added a new feature to increase public awareness. The app, MobilePatrol, is now available.
MobilePatrol is an app designed for iPod Touch, iPad and iPhone users and provides real-time detention center detainee information including mug shots, charges and access to Victim Information Notification Everyday (VINE) Link.
"With this app users can view who is in jail, who has warrants, our most wanted list and child-support issues," said Lawrence County Sheriff Jody Dotson.
"The app also features links to the sheriff's department and contact information for city officials."
The app is designed by Appriss, Inc., out of Rogers and is powered by VINE.
"This service also allows crime victims a service to obtain timely and reliable information about criminal cases and the custody status of offenders 24 hours a day," Dotson said. "If you are a victim this provides you with peace of mind that you can be notified of the offenders release from jail."
Communication features will include inmate information including name, address, photo and specific charges, active warrants related to non-custodial parents and most wanted criminals, amber alerts, escapes, community emergencies and other key information.
"The MobilePatrol app is user friendly and I believe it will be a useful tool not only for the sheriff's office but all of Lawrence County," Dotson said.
