Alabama National Fair

Please make plans to attend the Fair and come by our booths inside the Coliseum. Sheriff Cunningham will be there along with his Staff to greet Montgomery County residents!


Medication Disposal

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office has partnered with CVS Pharmacy to supply a new drug collection unit which was 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!
