Washington Parish Sheriff's Office Updates Text Alert System on Website

The Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office will upgrade its text message alert notification feature on or before 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:

Sample alert message

As shown above, the message body will have a Subject line (the Press Release title, in the above example) and a From address of Washington Parish Sheriff LA. 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 Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office welcomes any feedback from the community on this text alert upgrade. To provide feedback, please let us know through our Contact Us form or call us at 985-839-3434.

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