EXTEND COMMUNITY Platform Promotes Indiana Sheriffs’ Association Life-Saving Commitment to “Building Communities of Trust”
The Indiana Sheriffs’ Association (ISA) is committed to “Building Communities of Trust” throughout Indiana’s 92 counties. The ISA also strives to strengthen communication among Sheriffs within the state. EXTEND COMMUNITY provides the online resource for Sheriffs that improves community-building and enhances communication. The web-based Sheriff’s Community Manager platform, created by EXTEND COMMUNITY, is currently used by Sheriffs in several Indiana counties to better connect, protect, and serve their public. The mobile-friendly sites are a source of constant, consistent news and information for the media and community. They also provide answers to frequently asked questions, which greatly reduces the number of phone calls coming into the Sheriffs’ departments.
ISA Launches New Online Experience for Users
ISA is the latest organization to connect with the public via the innovative tool. Stephen P. Luce, ISA Executive Director, explains:
“By partnering with EXTEND COMMUNITY, the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association can bring forth to the Sheriffs and Communities, the importance of Public Safety in educating all citizens about the issues. EXTEND COMMUNITY provides the platform that best suits our needs in pushing out information to all Indiana Communities. We are excited about having EXTEND COMMUNITY as the ISA’s Community Manager.”
EXTEND COMMUNITY, the Community Manager branch of the Evansville, Indiana-based EXTEND GROUP, also provides the 24/7 communication platform for Daviess County. According to Daviess County Sheriff, Jerry Harbstreit, “The responsibility of the Sheriff’s Office is to supply professional, ethical, and responsive law enforcement to all citizens, businesses, and guests of Daviess County. The goal of this website is to help us meet that responsibility by informing our residents about the Sheriff’s Office and the services we provide, including Road Patrol, Dive Team, Search & Rescue, Strategic Response Team, CSI, Investigations, Warrants, Courthouse Security, Civil Process, and Jail Division.”
EXTEND GROUP Founder and CEO, Shawn Collins, reports, “We’re honored to be part of the positive process that builds a bridge of communication between those who protect their community and those who are the community. As a Gold Star Member and Preferred Platform Vendor of the ISA, we’re proud to be a valued, proven resource in connecting communities with the community of men and women who protect and serve.”
