Some of the new features include Synergy with the agency's social media platforms, a place to enter tips and ask questions, as well as a list of active warrants. Sheriff Williams believes the website will help establish two-way communication between the sheriff's office and the community,
"While we see a lot, the public sees a lot more," said Sheriff Williams. "And if they share more of that information with us, we'll be much more able to do our jobs effectively. Ultimately, that's what it's all about. So, we look at this like as a good investment and making us more efficient and effective in serving the public."
The sheriff's office partnered with a local company, The Extend Group, to design the new site. The url remains the same: vanderburghsheriff.com.
