The new, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office uses ConnectProtect technology to provide two-way communications between the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and the people of Palm Beach County.
The PBSO app is part of a revolution in communications between law enforcement and the people they serve. Through the app, PBSO can be in contact with the residents of Palm Beach County with information based on exactly where you are at the time. Information that is relevant to your neighborhood – even the street where you live – can be instantly sent to you.
But it’s not a one-way communications tool: ConnectProtect technology gives Palm Beach County residents an unsurpassed ability to communicate directly to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
After a crime or act of terrorism, all too often someone say that they saw something beforehand, but didn’t say something when they saw it. ConnectProtect technology enables residents of Palm Beach County to instantly let PBSO know when there is suspicious activity that they think needs attention, making Palm Beach County residents a vital part in the fight against crime and terrorism.
Download and use the PBSO app regularly for instant information and two-way communications with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office; and, help make Palm Beach County a better, safer place to live, work and enjoy.

Ratings and Reviews
I believe all LE agencies should have an app just like this one! From sex offenders to reporting a tip! You can do it all Good Job PBSO!
Location tab grayed out, unable to turn location services on.
Still no fix.
Update: Feb. 09, 2019
Still no fix. Does the county know that they’ve paid for an app that is useless and does not function?
We’ve had many incidents in our area , with no way to be alerted or informed. We’ve had from fatality accidents to strong arm robberies, with subject on the loose, to burglaries in progress. This app needs to be fixed asap.
Good App PBSO
Good, useful app from PBSO. Shows a lot of different info from law enforcement. Also allows you to send in tips anonymously.
