Sheriff's Office Offers Real-Time Alerts

LABELLE, FL. -- Beginning last January 15, 2013, the Hendry County Sheriff's Office started using a new means of real time communication called Nixle. Nixle allows Hendry County Sheriff's Office to create and publish messages to individuals who subscribe via cell phone, text messages or e-mails.

Whether it's alerting subscribers about a missing child, crime suspect or a major traffic accident, information is received in real-time - when it matters most.

Hendry County Sheriff's Office has been using the Nixle communications for the last nine months to alert subscribers of missing persons, to include a recent silver alert.

Residents of Hendry County and neighboring communities can immediately begin receiving pertinent information via text message, e-mail and the web, whether is the Nixle web page or Hendry County Sheriff's Office Facebook page. 

Interested individuals can sign up at www.nixle.com or send a text message to 888777 with Hendry SO or the zip code that applies to the geographical location they wish to receive notifications for.
