Submit tips, view localized crime report map
Have you ever wondered how safe your neighborhood really is? Or would you like the option of giving police tips on your Android or iPhone?
Now that the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office has partnered with CrimeReports.com and TipSubmit.com, Pickens residents can do just that by accessing free crime reports for their area or by submitting anonymous tips through their mobile devices.
CrimeReports provides official sex offender information, crime events and incident information for Pickens County and surrounding areas.
“Providing reliable, timely information to our citizens is one of our top priorities, because an informed public is a safer public,” says Pickens County Sheriff Donnie Craig. “Partnering with CrimeReports gives us the ability to keep the public informed on a regular basis as to what is going on in the community.”
By downloading the free iPhone app you can filter crimes by location, address, crime type and date, and view them on an easy to read map that displays a different colorful icon for each crime. Registered sex offenders are also displayed on the map.
Click on the icons to find details about each crime, including the date and charge.
