Hello, I am Sheriff Craig Apple of the Albany County Sheriffs Office. I would like to thank you for downloading our Phone App. This App has many features, such as alerting the public about important up-to- the-minute emergency situations like power outages, traffic alerts, breaking news events and useful tips concerning Emergency Preparedness. You can click on an icon to submit tips on crime prevention to the Sheriffs Office, view the Offender Watch list, and Animal Abuse Registries. Information on the Project Lifesaver Program, Special Needs Registry and Yellow Dot Program is also readily available, as well as many other useful programs that the Sheriffs Office provides to the citizens of Albany County. Together with the men and women of the Sheriffs Office, I have built one of the finest Sheriffs Offices in the State of New York. We are devoted to protecting the citizens of Albany County and this App will be a useful tool in that endeavor.
