TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) -- Purdue students are giving the community a more convenient way to access information about the Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Office.
They developed an app that is free on Android.
Users can access features including inmate look-up, sex offender registry, We-Tip Hotline and all things sheriff's office related.
It routes people to the actual website, but Sheriff Goldsmith said this makes it readily available to anyone using the application.
The students that created the app did it as part of a class project.
Goldsmith said he's thankful for Purdue.
"It's amazing what you can do when you work together, communicate and you listen to people," said Goldsmith. "The opportunities are endless."
The app will be available for iPhones on its IOS system soon.
