Download the free app on Apple iTunes—and access the full content of the Daviess County Sheriff’s Community Manager website, via phone. Now, it’s all at your fingertips: Emergency alerts, news, booking records, tip reporting, FAQs, and more. As Daviess County Sheriff Jerry Harbstreit explains, “Based on the popularity of the mobile web platform (www.dcsheriff.com), we and our partners at EXTEND COMMUNITY decided that a native mobile application capable of streamlining the content of our website would be of significant value to the community.”EXTEND COMMUNITY, the Community Manager branch of the Evansville, Indiana-based EXTEND GROUP, created the mobile app to keep the Sheriff’s Office and the residents of Daviess County connected in a way that’s current with the growth of smartphone usage. According to EXTEND GROUP Founder and CEO, Shawn Collins, “Reports indicate nearly two-thirds of Americans own smartphones. For many owners, these devices are their primary connection to all things online.” What’s more, 93% of smartphone owners find these devices, “helpful” rather than, “annoying.”  And 72% consider their devices, “connecting” not, “distracting.”

The web-based, Sheriff’s Community Manager platform, also created by EXTEND COMMUNITY, is currently used by Sheriffs in several Indiana counties to better connect, protect, and serve their public. In addition to the iPhone app for Daviess County Sheriff’s Office, EXTEND COMMUNITY is also launching apps for other Sheriff’s Offices.

EXTEND COMMUNITY is an Indiana Sheriffs’ Association Gold Star Member and Preferred Vendor. Notes Shawn Collins, “We’re honored to be part of the positive process that builds a bridge of communication between those who protect their community and those who are the community.”
