Arkansas Sheriffs' Association Updates Text Alert System on Website
The Arkansas Sheriffs’ Association will upgrade its text message alert notification feature on October 3rd to supplement an upgrade completed earlier this summer. The upgraded text alert system will feature a short URL in the message body, instead of a full URL. The messages will continue to come from 96167 or 470-219-3777. Below is an example of a current alert with a full URL and a sample of the same alert with a short URL:
As shown above, the message body will have a Subject line (the News article title, in the example above) and a From address of Ark Sheriffs. There will still be an option to change subscription at the bottom of the message.
To sign up for alert notifications from our office, to change your current subscription, or to unsubscribe from our alerts, please go to our Sign Up for Alerts page.
The Arkansas Sheriffs’ Association welcomes any feedback on this text alert upgrade. To provide feedback, please let us know through our Contact Us form or call us at 501-244-0400.
As always, we wish to thank the public for their continued support of law enforcement. We believe the unique partnership between the public and law enforcement enhances the security and quality of life we all enjoy.
Executive Director Mike Godfrey
