Text Alerts Now Added to Website

The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office has now added another feature to its website.  Effective 02-09-2012 you can now sign up to receive text alerts to your phone when a change is made to the Sheriff's Office Website. 

Email alerts have been a part of the website for some time.  Now instead of having to check your email for new information, that information can be sent directly to your cell phone.  Information such as press releases, inmate roster, sex offenders, etc. can now be received through texts.

This feature was added to increase the awareness of the citizens of Lawrence County as to the daily operations of the Sheriff's Office as well as to provide necessary information that could prove valuable to citizens and victims alike.

To sign up for this new feature, go to and click on the "Sign Up for Alert" tab near the top left of the page.  It will request your cell phone number as well as your cell phone carrier.  Click on submit and you should be signed up.  You may also sign up for email alerts or both if you choose.
