Greensville County Sheriff's Office (SC)

The more community involvement that we have the more effective we are. We first implemented the CodeRED system in 2013, and it’s been used 44 times since then, reaching 242,000 people with seventy-five percent of the calls regarding missing or endangered people. CodeRED notifications get results. For instance, we sent an alert on August 31, 2015 after a woman was found stabbed to death in her Simpsonville home, and as a result, we were able to charge the woman’s son in the crime. This powerful technology alerts people in nearby communities when deputies are searching for missing persons or suspects and is a game-changer. Our communication capabilities have grown, all for the better, and it continues to just getting better and better.”  (Watch the Greensville, SC FOX affiliate video)
