Having the ability to provide law enforcement with detailed information is key to keeping crime out of Cabell County communities. The new Cabell County Crime Tips App does just that by allowing individuals who witness suspicious activity to quickly report it to the Cabell County Sheriff’s office using their iPhone or Android device. Information on the app, which works on devices running iOS or Android operating systems, can be found at http://www.cabellcountysheriff.com/.

“We are very excited about this app,” said Cabell County Sheriff Tom McComas. “Our community plays a large part in keeping our streets safe. Giving them the ability to provide us with detailed information along with a photo makes this app an invaluable tool when responding to a report of suspicious activity.”

The Cabell County Crime Tip was specifically created to send information, including photos and text, to the Cabell County Sheriff’s office which allows for quicker response times and more accurate reports.

This free application allows users to:

  • Specify the type of suspicious activity
  • Report detailed subject and vehicle descriptions
  • Automatically find and use their location to enter an address
  • Capture a picture using the app or use one already on their device
  • Include their own contact information or remain anonymous if preferred

The application is not intended for emergency purposes and you are encouraged to dial 911 or your local police department in the event of an emergency.

The new Cabell County Sheriff Crime Tip Application was developed at no cost to the Cabell County Sheriff’s office through the state’s self-funded electronic government program, WV.gov.
