St. Johns County Sheriff David Shoar informed Historic City News that he has purchased six informational kiosks capable of broadcasting images of missing and wanted individuals, sex offender notifications, unsolved crimes, amber and silver alerts, safety and crime prevention tips; all which can be updated and changed at the kiosk location wirelessly.
The technology required was purchased with proceeds from a federal grant, Commander Chuck Mulligan told local reporters.
“This is another tool that we can use to get information to and from the public on a variety of outstanding and cold case investigations,” Sheriff Shoar said. “The kiosk contains a video screen that is divided into three sections with ever changing information on a variety of topics.”
In order to achieve their crime prevention and wanted fugitive mission, the kiosks need to be installed in locations with large amounts of foot traffic. A kiosk has initially been installed at the St. Johns County Tax Collector’s Office and at the Courthouse. If you are a business owner interested in a kiosk for your high traffic location, contact Commander Chuck Mulligan at (904) 209-1550.
