Chenango County Sheriff introduces Smartphone app

Ernest R. Cutting Jr. Sheriff


Technology improves delivery of information to community 

DATELINE - Chenango County Sheriff Ernest R. Cutting Jr. announced today that his office has launched a smartphone app that allows the office to communicate much more effectively with the community. The Chenango County Sheriff’s Office app is a free download and is available for both iPhone and Android smart devices. Users simply search “MobilePatrol” and after downloading, select the sheriff’s office. Users of the app will have access to real-time detention center information with mug shots, charges and offender information. The app is fully integrated with VINE®   (Victim Information and Notification Everyday), which allows crime victims to be notified about the custody status of their offender.   The app also includes warrants, lists of  non-custodial parents and most-wanted criminals, news, the facility location, the sheriff’s office directory and much more. “The most beneficial and significant feature of this app is that it lets us get important information right to people’s fingertips,” said Sheriff Cutting. “The app greatly improves our ability to serve the public, and that’s what we’re here for. We’re thrilled that we can provide this  to the community.” Information that can be pushed right to a user’s smartphone includes Amber Alerts (including photos of missing persons),  news about escapees and manhunts, weather warnings and other local emergencies.“ We know that more and more people are getting the information they need from their smartphones,” said Sheriff Cutting. “We want to make sure we’re using the latest communication technology to keep the public informed, and this app lets us do that.”


On Monday 24, 2014 Sheriff Cutting received calls related to a phone scam in which people called County Businesses conducting a fund raiser for the Sheriff's Summer Youth Camp. The Chenango County Sheriff's Office does not conduct phone call fund raisers. Business's are encouraged to hang up and report the incident to the Chenango County Sheriff's Office at 334-2000 option #1.
