Prentiss Sheriff Introduces Smart Phone App

PRESS RELEASE

Prentiss County Sheriff Randy Tolar announced today that his office has launched a smartphone app that allows the office to communicate much more effectively with the community. The Prentiss County Sheriffs Department app is a free download for users and is available for the Android smart devices and soon for iPhones.

Users of the app will have access to real-time detention center information. The sheriff's office will be able to send news and alerts directly to users' smartphones--notifying them about anything from missing persons to escapes.

"The most beneficial and significant feature of this app is that it lets us get important information right to people's fingertips," said Sheriff Tolar. "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."

The app is also fully integrated with the jail's victim notification service, VINE (Victim Information and Notification Everyday).

"We know that more and more people are getting the information they need from their smartphones," said Sheriff Tolar. "We want to make sure we're using the latest communication technology to keep the public informed, and this app lets us do that."
