Seneca County Sheriff announces release of public safety mobile app

September 21  – (Romulus, NY)   Seneca County Sheriff, Timothy Luce, announces the release of a new iPhone and Android mobile app as a service to the community. The app is available for the public as a free download from the app stores.

The new app is an innovative approach to help Seneca County citizens stay tuned to important news and resources from the Sheriff’s Office.  After downloading the app onto a smartphone or tablet, a user can receive important alerts from the Sheriff’s Office and access public safety information..

One of the app’s key features is: “Submit a Tip”– a form that enables you to submit a crime tip, along with photos. Tips can be made anonymously or with contact information. Users that submit tips can remain confidential.

Users can also phone in a narcotics tip directly through the app’s Drug Tip line feature.

Users can scroll through the list of Seneca County’s Most Wanted fugitives including their photos, details, and offenses.

Under the Main Menu, Users can access Inmate Information, including an Inmate Search, Correctional Facility information, rules and Visitation hours. You can also make payments online directly from the app: post bail, and place funds in an inmate’s commissary account.


Other important features include Victim Notification Services, Pistol Permits, and the Citizen’s Academy.


Read and share the latest social media posts from the Seneca Sheriff’s Office on Facebook and Twitter.


To engage the greater community in public safety, anyone with the app can use the “Share our App” feature under Settings, as well as forward alerts to friends, family, and neighbors.

This will be a great resource for the community to receive Emergency alerts, Public Service Announcements, Press Releases and Updates from the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office.

For more information, contact the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office: 315-220-3200.
