Sheriff Robert Langley says it's meant to give residents, businesses and visitors important alerts, notifications and resources.  One feature is a  Submit a Tip section, which lets users to submit anonymous tips about narcotics, underage drinking, human trafficking and other incidents via email and texts or with their contact information. The tip lines also allow users to submit a photo with the tip.

Other features include inmate information, warrants, sex offender information and victim notification.  There are also sections about Child Safety Seat programs, Pistol Permits & Handgun Safety and the Drug Hotline. 

Seized asset funds were used to fund the development of the app. No tax dollars were used.
