SIOUX FALLS (AP) — Residents of South Dakota can now be notified about an escaped inmate via text message or email.
Officials with the South Dakota Department of Corrections say they have teamed up with Nixle Community Information Service to deliver that and other public safety information to subscribers.
Corrections Secretary Denny Kaemingk in a news release says the service allows DOC to get important information out to the public quickly.
People can sign up to receive the alerts for one or all of the DOC accounts by registering at nixle.com. People can also access the notifications at the website.
The department announced a series of security changes in July after a 41-year-old man was charged with murdering a 75-year-old Sioux Falls woman days after he was released from prison.
