Corporal Kofee Anderson
National DARE Officer of the Year
Sheriff Derrick Cunningham and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office would like to congratulate Corporal Kofee Anderson on receiving National Dare Officer of the Year. Sheriff Cunningham was quoted as saying, “with all the negative going on in our city and county as it relates to our youth, whether it be bad decisions or choices; it is great to see national recognition for one of our finest. Dare America just recognized Corporal Kofee Anderson at their national conference”. Sheriff Cunningham would like to reiterate that through good communication between law enforcement and our youth, good daily decisions and positive interactions, it does pay off as Corporal Anderson has demonstrated. The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office would like to congratulate Corporal Anderson on making a difference in the community with our youth!
Keep up the good work, Corporal Anderson!
On Friday, March 17, 2017, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office unveiled their new drug collection unit they received as part of CVS Health’s Medication Disposal for Safer Communities Grant Program. The new unit will be located at the Administrative Office of the Sheriff, at 100 South Lawrence (2nd floor lobby) and will provide residents with a safe and environmentally responsible way to dispose of unwanted, unused or expired medication, including controlled substances.
The new drug disposal unit will help to reduce the amount of unneeded medicine in residents’ homes and decrease the potential for prescription drug abuse, which has soared in recent years, especially among teenagers. More than 70 percent of teenagers say it is easy to get prescription drugs from their parents’ medicine cabinets, according to a Partnership for Drug-Free Kids study. Proper drug disposal also helps to prevent the contamination of local landfills and water supplies from unused medication.

Sheriff’s Office APP
We are getting a lot of positive feedback from our new Sheriff’s Office APP! In case you missed last month’s article, here it is again…
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”
• 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!
