Sheriff's Office Unveils New App for Civic Center Safety

The Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office has unveiled a new tool aimed at making the Civic Center a more secure place.

Sheriff Dave Wedding and Dave Rector from the Building Authority showed off the new Civic Center security app on Wednesday afternoon.

The sheriff's office's IT Department worked 16 months to develop the app, which will send out push alerts if there's a security threat at the Civic Center.

Sheriff Wedding said the officer-involved shooting outside the building three weeks ago highlighted the need for a way to get security information out quickly.

On any given day, as many as 3,000 people are at the Civic Center and courts building.

The app is now available on the Apple or Google app stores.
