The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is launching a revamped website at www.JeffCoSO.org, along with a smartphone app.

According to a news release, “the responsive website solution provides access to all features of the website, including inmate roster, press releases, most wanted, and sex offender information. The responsive design allows site visitors to access the information they want and need from any device with simple, flexible navigation.”

Jefferson County Sheriff Lafayette Woods Jr. said he and his office are “proud to introduce this enhanced design using up-to-date technology to increase the transparency of our office and to provide a 24/7 information source for county residents and visitors.”

Woods continued, “Our goal with the website is to provide transparency between our office and the public. We want the public to understand how this office serves the community, residents, and visitors. We want our community members to have the information they need when they need it. Each day, more visitors are accessing the website using their smartphones, tablets and other devices. The responsive design allows users to more quickly and conveniently access the information on the device of their choice. The site also features a Site Search, which makes finding specific information much faster and easier for the site visitor.”

In addition to the new website, the JCSO has announced a new mobile app, which is available for free on both Android and iOS mobile devices. To download, visit www.JeffCoSO.org/app or go to the Google Play Store or Apple App Store and type “Jefferson County Sheriff” in the search bar.

“The mobile App allows easy access to the most important features of the website: Contact Us, Submit a Crime Tip, Inmate Roster, Most Wanted, Sex Offender Map, Crime Map, Press Releases, Special Alerts, and Frequently Asked Questions,” the news release said.

“The app user can select which push notifications they would like to subscribe to, including daily Inmate Roster notifications, Most Wanted, Sex Offender, and Press Release alerts. The new mobile App will serve as an additional information resource for the public and will assist with community policing efforts.”

Woods said that “any feedback is encouraged and appreciated by the Sheriff’s Office. Please send us any feedback through our Contact Us page.”
