Fremont County has contracted with Emergency Communications Network to license its CodeRED high-speed notification solution. The CodeRED system gives officials the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire county.
Sheriff Len Humphries says the systems are only as good as the telephone number database supporting them. "If your phone number is not in the database, you will not be called." One of the reasons the CodeRED system was selected is it gives individuals and businesses the ability to add their own phone numbers directly into the system's database.
“No one should automatically assume his or her phone number is included,” Humphries says, urging all individuals and businesses to log on to the CodeRED web site to register. Required information includes first and last name, street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes), city, state, zip code, and primary phone number. Additional phone numbers can be entered as well.
All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the past year, and those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary number.
Humphries says, "CodeRED allows geographically based delivery, which means street addresses are required to ensure emergency notification calls are received by the proper individuals in a given situation. The system works for cell phones too, but we need to have an associated street address to provide relevant messages. CodeRED gives those who want to be included an easy and secure method for inputting information. The data collected will only be used for emergency notification purposes."
Humphries cautions users who log on to the web site to be patient and fill out all the required fields. They should pay close attention to the map that appears when a street address is entered to make sure the location has been pinpointed accurately. Users can create an account so that they may update their information later.
Anyone who does not have Internet access who would like to register, should call the Sheriff’s Office at 208-624-4482.
Victim Information and Notification Everyday
Fremont County, working with the Idaho Department of Correction, has implemented a new program to allow crime victims access to timely information about criminal cases and the custody status of inmates 24 hours a day - over the telephone, through the Internet, or by e-mail. Crime victims and the general public can access information by calling a local toll-free number, or logging onto www.vinelink.com, any time of the day or night, or by clicking on the button below. The National Victim Notification Network™, VINE, communicates with jail and prison booking systems in near real-time.
Victims and other concerned citizens can call to inquire about the current status of an inmate and can register to be notified immediately upon a change in the inmate's status, such as release, escape or court appearance.
The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce that they have established a Drug & Crime Hotline. We recognize that a designated telephone line can be a very important dimension to any community’s anti-drug effort, unfortunately we do not have the manpower to assign someone around the clock to handle the hotline; however, the hotline will ring directly into the Fremont County Sheriff “Investigations” Office during business hours. After hours, callers with information will be greeted by a recording. The hotline recording will be checked daily.
Anonymity is okay, however, if callers want an investigator to contact them they will need to leave their personal information. This hotline is not to give information about drug abuse or drug rehabilitation, but to help solicit the communities assistance in fighting drugs and crime in our area. We look forward to utilizing this hotline, and any information gained by the hotline will be followed up on by our deputies. The new Fremont County Sheriff Drug & Crime Hotline is 208-624-1538. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Lieutenant Thad Garner at the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office at our regular number 208-624-4482.
