Although it has generated only two tips, Door County Sheriff Tammy Sternard hopes the "See It, Say It, Send It" app will go a long way in promoting school safety. A collaboration between the Door County public schools and the sheriff's department, the app was first launched back in November as a way to set up an anonymous tip line for the 21st century. Much like its telephone tip line that has been in service for 20 years, the app funnels information to the Door County Sheriff's Department before being evaluated by local law enforcement. Sternard says the app is meant to serve all Door County residents and to give people options if they do see criminal activity
Sternard says the next phase of the app roll out will allow users to receive alerts from law enforcement agencies about major incidents like school shootings. The app was rolled out by the sheriff's department as a way to standardized similar reporting efforts at Door County's five public school districts.
