PARIS – A new Web site set up by the Oxford County Sheriff’s Office will allow the public to contact local law enforcement officers, make helpful suggestions and even leave anonymous tips online.

“I think it’s a great opportunity for people to connect with us via the Internet,” Sheriff Skip Herrick said Thursday, showing off the new site. “I think it’s important, certainly, to be available in substance here in South Paris, but I think it’s also important to have this site.”

The site, which may be reached at www.oxfordcountysheriff.com, has links to general information on the department, contact information for Herrick’s law enforcement officers and administrative staff, and also links to national and state law enforcement Web sites. In addition, people may leave anonymous tips by clicking on the Tip Line button.

About six months ago, Herrick and Lt. Edward Quinn began talking about the Web site, Herrick said. The department had started one before, but never completed the work.

With a bit of outside help, Herrick now has a site that will be easy for the Sheriff’s Office to update and maintain.

The work cost $600, Herrick said, and will be covered by drug seizure money returned to the county through the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency for assistance with drug-related cases.
