The Rock County Sheriff's Office is selected by the Wisconsin Department of Justice to participate in a Crime Alert Pilot Program.
The Wisconsin Crime Alert Network allows the sheriff's office, as well as other local,. state, and federal law enforcement agencies, to quickly alert the community about a crime or criminal that may affect them.
The system uses email, text, and fax message to send alerts directly to people most likely to be affected by a particular crime, or most likely to be able to provide information to solve a crime.
As part of the program, the sheriff's office is offering a free 45-day trial membership to Crime Alert for residents and businesses.
