Jackson County Sheriff’s Department Updates Text Alert System on Website


The Jackson County Sheriff’s Department will upgrade its text message alert notification feature on or before October 3rd to supplement an upgrade completed earlier this summer. The upgraded text alert system will feature a short URL in the message body, instead of a full URL. The messages will continue to come from 96167 or 470-219-3777. Below is an example of a current alert with a full URL and a sample of the same alert with a short URL:

As shown above, the message body will have a Subject line (the Press Release title, in the above example) and a “From” address of Jackson Sheriff IN. There will still be an option to change subscription at the bottom of the message.


To sign up for alert notifications from our office, to change your current subscription, or to unsubscribe from our alerts, please go to our Sign Up for Alerts page: www.jacksoncountysheriffin.org/alerts_signup.php.

As always, we wish to thank the public for their continued support of law enforcement. We believe the unique partnership we have between the public and law enforcement enhances the security and quality of life we all enjoy.


Sheriff Mike Carothers
