Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office Updates Text Alert System

Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office Updates Text Alert System


The Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office has upgraded its text message alert notification feature as of July 13, 2016. Since July 13, 2016, the upgraded text alert system will use either a new five-digit short code (96167) or the ten-digit telephone number used previously (470-219-3777).


With this short code upgrade, the layout of information in the text alert may also change. Each message from the short code (96167) will have a Subject line (i.e. New Most Wanted, New Sex Offender, etc.) and a From address of Lawrence County Sheriff MO.
