WPSO updates text alert system

from staff reports

The Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office recently upgraded its text message alert notification feature, to supplement an upgrade completed earlier this summer.

The upgraded text alert system features a short URL in the message body, instead of a full URL. The messages will continue to come from 96167 or 470-219-3777.

The message body will have a Subject line and a From address of “Washington Parish Sheriff LA.” There will still be an option to change subscription status at the bottom of the message.

To sign up for alert notifications from the WPSO, to change a current subscription, or to unsubscribe from the alerts, visit the “Sign Up for Alerts” page online at wpso.la.gov.

The Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office welcomes any feedback from the community on this text alert upgrade. To provide feedback, call 985-839-3434.

“As always, we wish to thank the public for their continued support of law enforcement,” Parish Sheriff Randy Seal said. “We believe the unique partnership we have between the public and law enforcement enhances the security and quality of life we all enjoy.”
