News and Updates made to our website:
Greetings from the Cross County Sheriff's Office!
As you may know, our Sheriff's office has been in the process of updating our website so we can better inform the public. The first quarter of this year we updated the site with a new look and added a few new features like Press Releases, Message from the Sheriff, Most Wanted and our Jail Roster.
In updating our website and with the help of our community we were able to arrest 27 off our Most Wanted since May of this year. The news media was able to pick up our stories a lot easier with the ease of online Press Releases. The phone calls coming into our office, has been cut down by 90% since we added the jail roster online.
We want to always think of new ways to better inform the citizens of Cross County, so we have been working on some new features this last quarter to do so. We have now added the following features to our website.
