Harrison County Sheriff’s Office Launches New Website
The Harrison County Sheriff’s Office launched a new Website on January 5, 2015 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 Website, www.HarrisonCountySheriffMO.org, features press releases, messages from Sheriff Josh Eckerson, pages on the services of each division of the Sheriff’s Office, as well as a link to submit crime tips via email.
“The safety of county residents is our primary concern at the Sheriff’s Office. We feel the sex offender Website map feature allows us to better-protect county residents by keeping them informed,” stated Sheriff Josh Eckerson.
Other features of the Website include:
Most Wanted Listings – allows the public to view photos and descriptions of wanted individuals.
Sex Offenders Listings – allows the public to view photos and information about sex offenders living in the county.
"The new Website provides greater transparency for the Sheriff’s Office and encourages the public to take a more active role in community policing efforts. 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 Harrison County as well,” said Sheriff Eckerson.
