Putnam County Sheriff's Office Launches New Website
The Putnam County Sheriff's Office launched a new responsive Website on January 13, 2021 where residents can find the latest information regarding the operations of the Sheriff's Office as well as locate area sex offenders. The new Website will serve as an information resource for the public and assist with community policing efforts. The responsive design allows site visitors to access the information they want and need from any device with simple, flexible navigation.
The new Website, https://www.PutnamSO.org, features press releases, messages from Sheriff Knight which are updated frequently, pages on the services of each division of the Sheriff's Office, as well as a link to submit crime tips via email.
"Our goal with the website is to provide transparency between our office and the public. We want the public to understand how this office serves the community, residents, and visitors. We want our community members to have the information they need, when they need it. The responsive design allows users to quickly and conveniently access the Website information on the device of their choice: desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. In addition, the responsive Website features a Site Search, which makes finding specific information much faster and easier for the site visitor," said Sheriff Knight.
Other features of the Website include:
Alert Notifications - allows the public to sign up for alert notifications from the Sheriff's Office via email or text - including press releases, messages from the Sheriff, most wanted updates, and jail roster updates.
Jail Roster - allows the public to view photos and information for individuals booked into the detention center and/or released within the last 48 hours.
Most Wanted Listings - allows the public to view photos and descriptions of wanted individuals.
Press Releases - allows the public to view a list in date order, sorted by year, of press release and news items posted by the Sheriff's Office.
"Posting information on the Website improves the efficiency of the Sheriff's Office by reducing the number of inquiry calls handled by our office. This tool allows us to devote more resources to the safety and security of our residents. Our intent is for every County resident to visit the site and become familiar with how to locate sex offenders, how to submit a crime tip and where to find the latest news and updates from the Sheriff's Office. We believe the Website is a huge benefit to the Sheriff's Office and the residents of Putnam County as well," said Sheriff Knight.
