Morton County deputies use interactive safety app at ND Country Fest

By  | 

NEW SALEM, N.D. - With thousands of people attending ND Country Fest, the Morton County Sheriff's Department is using a new app to keep track of deputies patrolling the grounds.

The dozen or so deputies on patrol can now stay connected with each other using an app called Intrepid.

“We can see where everyone is and then with that you can also take pictures where you are if you have an incident and that can be sent out to everybody," said Kyle Kirchmeier, Morton County sheriff.

If the app proves successful, Kirchmeier says they hope to put it into everyday use.
