MOBILE PATROL APP

PRESS RELEASE

June 11th, 2013

Delaware County Sheriff Thomas Mills announced today that his office has launched a smart phone app that allows the office to communicate much more effectively with the community. The Delaware County Sheriff's Office app is a free download and is available for both iPhone and Android smart devices. Users simply search "MobilePatrol" and after downloading, select the sheriff's office.

Users of the app will have access to real-time detention center information with mug shots, charges and offender information. The app is fully integrated with VINE (Victim Information and Notification Everyday), which allows crime victims to be notified about the custody status of their offender. The app also includes warrants, lists of non-custodial parents and most-wanted criminals, news, the facility location, the sheriff's office directory and much more.

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

Information that can be pushed right to a user's smart phone includes Amber Alerts (including photos of missing persons), news about escapees and manhunts, weather warnings and other local emergencies.

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