Register for Community Information/Emergency Alerts
As critical events develop, it is always in the interest of community safety when your Sheriff’s Office can notify you of the circumstances, the emergency, or the specific event of interest. In an effort to better serve our community safety and support the interests of our citizens of Bureau County, Sheriff John Thompson has partnered with a provider for emergency and informational notification [directly to our citizens]. Notification of critical incidents, road closures, missing persons and for many, many additional reasons, this service can be provided to our citizens in a timely and convenient manner. Through the use of cellular text messaging, e-mail, an internet website or any combination of these notification means, you can receive an official notification from the Sheriff.
