Sheriff's Department Launches a Citizens Alert System

September 28, 2007

The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department has implemented a new CITIZENS ALERT SYSTEM.

Sheriff Patrick Ray says "the CITIZENS ALERT SYSTEM is designed to inform the citizens of DeKalb County, via email and fax, of anything going on in the county that might affect you as a citizen and also add more eyes to the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department in knowing about potential problems before they happen to you."

The CITIZENS ALERT SYSTEM informs businesses and citizens about criminal activity,
wanted persons, missing persons, security and safety issues 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Sheriff Ray says the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office has established a CITIZENS ALERT SYSTEM that links the citizens and businesses and the county's law enforcement agency through an email and fax communication system located at the Sheriff's Office. " This email and fax database allow us to quickly alert businesses and citizens to criminal activity and important information that is relevant to the security and safety of all citizens, business operations,
employees and customers, twenty-four hours a day."

If you would like to participate in this program, you may go to the Sheriff's Department's website at and click on the CITIZEN ALERT SYSTEM selection in the menu and complete the form at the bottom of the page. You can sign up for your home or your business, or both. If you don't have Internet access and want to sign up for the CITIZEN
ALERT SYSTEM by fax, send the following information to the sheriff by regular mail: Your Name, Complete Home Address, Home Phone Number, Home Fax Number, Business Name, Complete Business Address, Business Phone Number, and Business Fax Number.
