Newport News Sheriff’s Office Launches Connect Protect App

Posted on June 9, 2017 at 8:25 AM by Communications Department

"See something, say something" with the newly available Newport News Sheriff’s Office App, Connect Protect?, a mobile Suspicious Activity Reporting System. This innovative program now provides citizens with a confidential communication link to report issues directly to the Newport News Sheriff’s Office. Users can upload a photo or video of the suspicious activity and send the geographic location. Sheriff Morgan calls it a game changer for law enforcement. NNSO app_SC

This easy to use app can be accessed anywhere with a smart phone or mobile device. Sign up to receive notifications when new items are posted, get the latest news about the Sheriff’s Office and learn about public events Sheriff’s Office personnel are attending. This program isn’t intended to report emergency situations – citizens should call 911 if they have an emergency.

Connect Protect?, designed by Shield Group Technologies, was made possible thanks to a generous donation from the Wason family through the Williamsburg Community Foundation. The Newport News Sheriff’s Office app is available for download via links on the Sheriff’s Office Website, the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
