Apps for your smart phone can do just about anything it seems like and now they can keep you up to date on the latest information from the Edgar County Authorities.
The Edgar County Sheriff’s Department now has a crime app.
Once the information is put in by an officer, it updates a map that appears in the app.
If you think you might know something about a given crime, there's a tip function to send text and photo tips directly to the sheriff.
Police say that it is just one more way to make information work to help fight crime.
