In streamlining operations at the Sheriff's Office we have switched over to a state sponsored alert system, NY-Alert.  To register for this alert service go to  Click on the "sign up for alerts" tab on the left and then click enroll.  Follow the screen prompts to select the types of alerts you want to receive.  We recommend including the "press release" notification, as we will send out most of the information in this format.  We are in the process of creating a tip system.
