Lea County Sheriff's Office launches free mobile app

Updated:

The Lea County Sheriff's Office has released a free mobile app to connect with the Lea County community through their smartphones and tablets.

The new app allows the Sheriff's Office to quickly disseminate emergency alerts and post news about missing persons, traffic delays and weekly crime reports. In the event of an emergency, app users receive instant notifications via their mobile devices.

Citizens can send comments and crime tips, anonymously if they wish, and they can place calls to the Lea County Sheriff's Office with the touch of a button.

Anyone using Android, Windows or Apple platforms can download the app by going to the app store and searching for the "Lea County Sheriff's Office" app.

Undersheriff Michael Walker said the app also allows the Lea County Sheriff's Office to post photos and images, bulletins, a calendar of events and conduct community surveys.

The app is not meant to replace calling 911 for crimes and emergencies in progress. Those experiencing an emergency situation should continue to call 911. 

The Lea County Sheriff's Office app was developed under the name USPDhub by LogicTree UT Solutions, Inc. of Citrus Heights, California.
