Parker County Sheriff Announces New Alert System

Parker County Sheriff Russ Authier announced the implementation of the tip411 alert and tip system from CitizenObserver, a new interactive way to keep the community connected and informed about public safety issues through the department’s app, email, text message, and online web page.  Tip411 also allows the public to report tips about crimes and other suspicious activities directly to the sheriff’s office by sending anonymous text messages from their cell phone or via a free smartphone app.  The app is also available in the Apple App Store or Google Play, by searching for “Parker County Sheriff’s Office.” Although you don’t need the app to receive alerts or send tips, the Sheriff’s Department believes the app will offer citizens the most engagement with their office.
