Press release submitted by Scott County Sheriff's Office


Technology Improves Delivery of Information to Community

The Scott County Sheriff's Office is pleased to announce today the release of a smartphone app which will allow the Office to communicate much more effectively with the community. The Scott 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 State of Iowa and our agency.
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 news, facility locations, Sheriff's Office directory, and a link to our Facebook page.
The app also provided functionality to allow users to submit Crime Tips. Users can submit tips relating to Crime, Traffic/Safety Concerns, Nuisance Complaints, and Bullying.
We recognize that more and more people are getting information they need from smartphones and want to make sure we're using the latest communication technology to keep the public informed.
A significant feature of the app is that it lets us get important information right to people's fingertips. The app greatly improves our ability to serve the public and we are excited we can provide this to the community.
