WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - St. Lawrence County Sheriff Brooks Bigwarfe announced Wednesday that he’s responding to the COVID-19 emergency with the release of a mobile app for the sheriff’s office.

This app includes two important COVID-19 resources:

- Sign up for CDC COVID-19 alerts from Settings/Notifications

- Access a COVID-19 feature with links to social media, travel notices, FAQs, and alerts

The Submit a Tip feature enables users to submit a crime tip directly to the sheriff’s office.
