Hocking County Sheriff Lanny E. North is pleased to announce the release of a new digital resource to help keep the residents and visitors of Hocking County informed about the services the Sheriff’s Office has to offer along with news releases, weather updates and emergency notifications.
The Hocking County Sheriff’s Office Smart Phone App has been under development for the past few months and is now available for both Apple iPhones, in the App Store and Android devices in the Google Play Store.
Through the smartphone app, you can learn more about our different divisions and units, find contact information, submit crime tips or feedback and view our Facebook page.
There is also information on services we provide such as Project HOPE, Concealed Carry Permits, Environmental Conservation, Jail and Inmate information, KidPrint, Neighborhood Watch, Sex Offender information, Sheriff Sales, R-U-OK, Vacation Checks, and WebChecks.
Sheriff North thought it was important to make this application a community resource for county residents so it also offers information and links to Veteran Services, Senior Services, and the School Districts that serve Hocking County residents.
Through the app, the Sheriff’s Office also has the ability to send out emergency alerts about road closures and weather and snow emergencies.
The app was made possible by grant funding received from the 317 Board (Athens-Hocking-Vinton Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services Board).
