Sheriff James R. Voutour

Welcome to our newest community safety project: CitizenObserver.

The Alert Network allows the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office to instantly update you about crimes, emergencies and other important information.

All Alerts are delivered via e-mail and are also available via text message on your cell phone.

  • Citizen Alerts inform all registered users of public safety concerns in your area. The Alerts contain information about crime trends, descriptions of suspects, missing persons, as well as advice on personal safety, and how to safeguard property.
  • Business Alerts are targeted to specific business types, so your business will receive information about crimes that are pertinent to your business type.
  • Case Alerts allow law enforcement to automatically disseminate information about open cases to all registered Citizen Observer users.
  • Watch Group Alerts allow law enforcement to send targeted alerts to specific neighborhoods with information about crimes that are happening in their immediate area.

There is no limit to what we can accomplish if we all work together, stay alert and stay connected!
