CAPE GIRARDEAU COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

Cape Girardeau County Sheriff John Jordan announces that his office has launched a new smartphone app that allows the office to communicate more effectively with the community.

The app is a free download for users, and is now available for android smart phones.

The iPhone app has been submitted to Apple, and Sheriff Jordan expects approval on that soon.

"We hope to get that up and running in the next month or so," said Sheriff Jordan.

Users will have access to real-time detention center information, plus lists of non-custodial parents and most-wanted criminals.

The sheriff's office will also be able to send news and alerts directly to users' smartphones notifying them about anything from bank robberies, missing persons, to escapes, to weather warnings.

"The most beneficial and significant feature of this app is that it lets us get important information right to people's fingertips," said Sheriff Jordan. "The app greatly improves our ability to serve the public and that's what we're here for."

The app is also fully integrated with the county's victim notification service, VINE (Victim Information and Notification Everyday).

You can find the Android app by searching for "Cape Girardeau Sheriff" in the app store.
