Sheriff Stays Connected With New Mobile App

A local Sheriff's department wants to be as connected and accessible as possible.

The Clare County Sheriff's Office in Harrison is the first department in Michigan with a specialized mobile app for cell phones.

The app allows the Sheriff to send notices to the public, post crimes committed in the county and then gives the people a voice directly to the Sheriff himself.

You can report a crime or check the sex offender's list, all in an effort by the Sheriff to keep up with a more mobile world.

The project did not cost the taxpayers a dime.

It was all paid for through drug forfeiture money.
