The Pulaski County, KY Sheriff’s Office has launched a new app, developed by tip411, for customized crime-fighting and better connects law enforcement with the public.
According to the sheriff’s office, the new PulaskiCo Sheriff app helps residents connect with deputies to find information, view alerts, and submit anonymous tips from their smartphone.
“It is our vision to build a team concept between the community and the Sheriff’s Office thereby providing the citizens of Pulaski County with an optimum level of protection and service, said Pulaski County Sheriff Greg Speck. “I believe our new app will help us better connect with residents so that we can all work together to make Pulaski County a safer place to live, work, and visit.”
The app and tip411 anonymous text-a-tip system is completely anonymous, as the technology removes all identifying information before deputies see the tips and there is no way to identify the sender.
The app also enables the public to share an anonymous tip with police and lets officers respond back to create an anonymous two-way conversation.
Residents in Pulaski County without a smartphone can send anonymous text tips via their cell phone to Deputies by texting keyword PCSOTIP and their message/tip to 847411 (tip411).
The app is available for download for free via the Google Play Store or iTunes App Store.
