Sheriff offers alert system

In an effort to communicate with our residents about crimes and events that can impact their lives, the Kent County Sheriff’s Office is offering a new service. Community Alerts is a free service that allows citizens to register for e-mail and text messages from the sheriff’s office. Through this free service, participants can receive information about crimes, scams and other situations so that they can be more vigilant and prepared. Messages can range from wanted persons to crime patterns, to traffic situations to avoid.

You can register for Kent County Community Alerts by going to www.accesskent.com/CommAlerts/, or by going to the sheriff’s department webpage at www.accesskent.com/CourtsAndLawEnforcement/SheriffsDepartment/sheriff_index.htm and clicking on the online service: Community Alerts. Once there, register your name, address, e-mail, text provider and the township(s) that you would like to receive information about.

The Kent County Sheriff’s Office believes in partnering with its citizens to prevent and solve crime. Community Alerts, along with the sheriff’s department’s crime-mapping at crimereports.com, is a dual approach in keeping citizens informed, aware and prepared.
