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 following 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!
