St. Lawrence County Sheriff responds to emergency with release of mobile app

CANTON, NY — Sheriff Brooks Bigwarfe announces the release of a new mobile app for the St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office. The app is available as a free download from the iPhone and Android app stores.

The app’s timely release will mean the availability of alerts, news, and resources of importance to St. Lawrence County citizens and businesses.

This app includes two important COVID-19 resources:
 Sign up for CDC COVID-19 alerts from Settings/Notifications
 Access a COVID-19 feature with links to social media, travel notices, FAQs, and alerts

The Submit a Tip feature enables you to submit a crime tip directly to the sheriff’s office. Your tip – sent anonymously or with your contact information, along with photos – is confidential. App users are asked to submit tips regarding ongoing investigations. However, you should call 911 in the case of an emergency.

Scroll through the list of St. Lawrence County’s Most Wanted fugitives. If you encounter any of these fugitives, do not attempt to apprehend them; instead use the app’s Submit a Tip feature to send anonymous tips to the sheriff’s office.

Under Inmate Information, find the Inmate Search, provided by Appriss Safety; under each inmate the public can sign up directly for change of status notifications.

There is additional information on the county correctional facility, visitation, commissary account deposits, and bail.

Search for sex offenders (provided by Offender Watch) on an easy to access map or by list.

Other important features include Programs, Resources, Fingerprinting for firearm licensing, and Recruitment & job openings. Read and share social media posts from the St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office via Facebook news.

“The mission of the St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office is to make our community a safe and enjoyable place to live and work,” said Sheriff Bigwarfe. “I encourage you to download our free app and share it with your family, friends, and neighbors so that they can receive our important news and alerts – especially in this very difficult time.”
