Sheriff's Office APP
The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office has a new phone app called "Montgomery County AL Sheriff" that can be accessed through your phone's app store. Once you have added this app to your phone, you can easily set your phone up to receive important push notifications. Push notifications are quick, important messages that can notify you of road closure(s), blocked road(s), anything pertinent to your travel, escapee, etc. While our app can help you with many things including checking to see if someone is in the county jail, it is most helpful to receive push notifications. After you have downloaded the app, go through the follow steps to make sure your phone is set up to receive the push notifications:
• Go to your phone's setting icon
• Scroll down and click "Applications"
• Scroll down to "MCSO" or "Montgomery County Sheriff" OR
• Click "Application Manager", if it doesn't take you directly to the location
• Click "Notifications"
• Turn 'on' "Allow Notifications" and "Previews in pop-ups"
You should be all set to receive the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office push notifications!
Mental Illness is becoming an epic program nationwide and the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office along with NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) have partnered to provide an informational brochure with helpful information and phone numbers to assist those in need.
Angel Christmas Tree for Homeless Families
The Sheriff's Office will have a Christmas tree with angel ornaments for anyone to come by or call to pick an ornament for homeless children and adults. These ornaments will list wanted, needy items. We encourage anyone wanting to donate new, unwrapped items for women, men and children to do so. You can call Lisa at 832.1339 or Christie at 832.7106 to receive a printed ornament via email or fax or you can come by our Administrative Office located at 100 South Lawrence Street to pick out an ornament. Sheriff Cunningham and staff will deliver any donated items to homeless families in our area close to Christmas day. Last year, we had an overwhelming outpour of gratitude from the community; this year we are looking for even more generosity!
