Reno, Nevada. August 22, 2013. The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office now has an App for iPhone and iPad to help increase public access to commonly used services such as online crime reporting, graffiti abatement and inmate searches.
The App is available for free from the Apple App Store. An Android version is currently in the works and is expected to be released this fall.
The initial edition of the Sheriff’s Office App provides access to some of the Office’s most frequently used public services, including online crime reporting, graffiti abatement, inmate searches, contact information, and the opportunity to sign up for additional information from the Sheriff’s monthly Community Partnership Connection eNewsletter.
Washoe County residents may also receive information about keeping their families and neighborhoods safer by following the Sheriff’s Office on Twitter at @washoesheriff, or visiting the “Staying Safe” page on the Sheriff’s Office website, Washoesheriff.com. Another important tool for increasing personal and neighborhood security is the free online neighborhood safety service, AlertID.
