New citizen alert system to keep Brunswick County residents informed

The Brunswick County’s Sheriff’s Office is opening up the lines of communication between law enforcement and the public.

A new citizen alert system informs residents of emergencies, hazardous weather, and bad traffic conditions, not to mention crimes that have happened.

The site is accessed by logging onto citizensobserver.com and clicking on ‘Brunswick County.’ You can scroll through a list of alerts to find out details about a crime or emergency in your area, or click on the map that plots every crime in the county so you can see how safe your neighborhood actually is.

By using this system, the sheriff’s office is informing the public about what’s going on in Brunswick County and getting the community’s help in return. “They can be our eyes out in the neighborhood and relay that information to us and hopefully in turn, we can solve more cases that way,” said Sheriff John Ingram.

If someone is wanted or missing, the county-wide alert can help the community track the person down.

You can also register to receive text or e-mail alerts by clicking ‘sign up’ and filling out the form.

Cape Fear Community College will be holding it’s Homecoming Weekend. The Alumni Association formed last year, as part of the college’s 50th anniversary, and has been working hard to organize alumni activities.

There is a reception at the Schwartz Center at 6:00 p.m. Friday before the basketball game against Brunswick Community College. It is open to all CFCC alumni.

Alumni Association members are eager to increase involvement within their organization. “If anybody has gotten anything from their education at Cape Fear, just give back, that’s why I’m doing it. We want to give back to a school that for me personally, helped me change my life,” said Dawn Hale.

Alumni Association members hope Friday night’s event leads to more events in the future.
