At its March 2015 Winter Conference in Bloomington, Indiana, the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association (ISA) designated EXTEND COMMUNITY as the ISA Preferred Platform Vendor. EXTEND COMMUNITY is the community manager branch of the Evansville, Indiana-based EXTEND GROUP. The company’s innovations include
EXTEND Community Manager, a website created for the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s office:

Among the community-building, time-saving benefits of the EXTEND Community Manager are postings of Safety and Crime Alerts, online filing of permits and reports, answers to frequently asked questions, plus Recent Bookings and Inmate Search capabilities. The Vanderburgh County site averages over 300,000 visitors per month and greatly reduces Q&A calls coming into the department. The site also serves as a training resource for the community, providing information on internet safety, identity theft, group education programs, and what to do in a traffic stop.

ISA Executive Director, Stephen P. Luce, explains the significance of EXTEND COMMUNITY’s distinction as Preferred Platform Vendor:

“By partnering with EXTEND COMMUNITY, the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association
can bring forth to the Sheriffs and their 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.”

Shawn Collins, Founder and CEO of EXTEND GROUP, reflects on his team’s achievement:

“As a Gold Star Member of the Indiana Sheriffs’ Association (ISA), we’re proud to be a valued, proven resource in connecting communities with the community of men and women who protect and serve.  We also believe that promoting training within a community strengthens those bonds.”
