Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) is pleased to introduce The Sheriff’s App, available for download right now by scanning the QR code or searching for “JC Sheriff OR” in your device’s App store.
The Sheriff’s App is the quickest way to receive updates from JCSO on events affecting our community. After downloading the App, choose to allow notifications and important alerts will come directly to your phone. The Sheriff’s App will allow the community to communicate more efficiently with our office.
“One aspect of this app that I think is going to be really convenient and important for our public is just the speed at which information can be delivered,” remarked Jackson County Sheriff Nate Sickler. The Sheriff’s App will provide emergency notifications directly to the user, but also alerts for road closures, high-risk incidents, wanted suspects, and major crimes. The public can use the app to communicate directly with our office and stay informed about public safety issues in Jackson County.
“At your fingertips, you're going to be able to access what's going on and be directed to the right place to get the right information,” explained Sheriff Sickler. “I think it just gives another tool to the public and our office to work on public safety together.”
