Ratings and Reviews
Requesting Vacation House Checks
I can no longer find the form in app to inform the Sheriff's office we will be away on vacation. Really hope that you bring it back or tell us where it is.
Web browser functions not working properly
I love that this app was created but this initial release needs a little tweaking. Viewing crime reports for instance brings up a web browser but you cannot scroll the page to view the entire report. With a little work tuning the GUI this will be a great way to stay up to date on YPSO activities.
