Bastrop County Sheriff’s Office Launches New Website
The Bastrop County Sheriff’s Office launched a new Website on December 1st 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 new website features press releases, messages from Sheriff Terry Pickering which are updated frequently, pages on the services of each division of the Sheriff’s Office, as well as a link to submit crime tips via email.
Other features of the Website include:
- Social Media Links – allows the public to follow the Bastrop County Sheriff’s Office on Facebook and Twitter.
- 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 for sex offenders living in the county.
“Posting information on the Website improves the efficiency of the Sheriff’s Office by reducing the number of inquiry calls handled by our office. This tool allows us to devote more resources to the safety and security of our residents. 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 Web site is a huge benefit to the Sheriff’s Office and the residents of Bastrop County as well,” said Sheriff Terry Pickering.
