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.

  Today is Tuesday, Sept. 16, the 259th day of 2014. There are 106 days left in the year.

1864 — 150 years ago: A fine lumber mill is on the course of erection at Andalusia. A flouring mill at that location is doing a fine business.
1889 — 125 years ago: J.B. Lidders, past captain of Beardsley Camp, Sons of Veterans, returned from Paterson, N.Y., where he attended the National Sons of Veterans encampments.
1914 — 100 years ago: President Wilson announced that he had received from the imperial chancellor of Germany a noncommittal reply to his inquiry into a report that the emperor was willing to discuss terms of peace.
1939 — 75 years ago: Delegates at the Illinois Conference of the Methodist Church in Springfield voted to raise the minimum pay of ministers so that every pastor would get at least $1,000 annually.
1964 — 50 years ago: An audience of more than 2,600 persons jammed into the Davenport RKO Orpheum theater with a shoe horn feasted on a Miller-Diller evening that was a killer night. Phyllis Diller sent the audience with her offbeat humor. And send them she did! It was Miss Diller's third appearance in the Quad-Cities area.
1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
