The Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office has launched an interactive app to help keep residents updated on local happenings or in case of emergencies.

The free app allows a user to get information through their mobile device and is designed to be interactive so users also can communication on the app, send pictures, email voice recordings and share the app with friends.

Sheriff Mike Booth said it will allow them to get information out to users quickly.

“This is good for us and it’s good for you so we can work together in Pottawatomie County to make this a better place to live,” Booth said.

Whether deputies have a perimeter set up for a manhunt or whether they need to alert residents that a bridge may be out, the app will send out information to those in a specific geo fence area, or countywide when needed, he said. It can be helpful in case of a missing person or other type of emergency.

“This way, we at the sheriff’s office can work with you to get all the information to you so you don’t have to question what happened,” he said.

It can be helpful if a school is on lockdown, Booth said, or if there are severe storms or tornadoes coming through a specific area.

To find the free app in the App Store, just type in “Pottawatomie County Sheriff Office.”
