New Sheriff's Office App Available

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office is now offering a new mobile app. The mobile app is offered for Smart Phones at no cost. The application has the ability to send out mass information such as when deputies are searching for suspects, children, and press releases. Citizens can also find jail and sex offender registration information along with some active warrants. At this time it is only available for Android Phones; however, it will be available for the I-Phone soon. The program is currently in the building stages and the sheriff’s department will be adding more features in the future. You can search for the app on the Google App Store for “Franklin County Sheriff’s New Mobile App.” Deputies will also have cards with instructions on how to apply for the App in their vehicles next week.

The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
