New Release - Deceased person County Road 36

On March 18th at approximately 5:00PM Ozark-Dale County E911 received a call in reference to a deceased person on East County Road 36 near the Choctawhatchee River in the Echo Community. Due to the state of decomposition the body has been transported to the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences for positive identification and an autopsy. To protect the integrity of the investigation limited information will be released but based on evidence collected at the scene investigators are treating this as a homicide investigation.  The sheriff’s office is being assisted by the Dothan and Ozark Police Departments, Dale County District Attorney’s Office, Dale County Coroner’ s Office, Echo Fire and Rescue, ALEA Troopers and the Dale County Sheriff’s Mounted Posse.  We urge anyone with information or anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in that area to contact the sheriff’s office @ 774-2335. You can also leave an anonymous tip by visiting our website at www.daleso.com and click on the “Crime Tip” tab.  As more information becomes available we will update.

New Release - Burglary Midland City

On March 17th at  approximately 5:30AM Ozark-Dale County E911 received a call of a burglary-in-progress call in the 12000 Blk of U.S. Highway 231 in the Midland City area. During the initial investigation deputies learned that a male subject had kicked in the front door and forced his way into the residence. The victim, who was inside the residence when the suspect made entry, was able to flee to a neighbor’s house and call 911.  Once additional deputies arrived they were about to locate the suspect near the victim’s property and take him into custody.  Investigators have charged John Fain with Burglary 2nd.  Fain is currently being held under no bond pending his 1st appearance hearing.

Below is an example of a current alert with a full URL and a sample of the same alert with a short URL:

As shown above, the message body will have a Subject line (the Press Release title, in the above example) and a From address of Dale Sheriff AL. There will still be an option to change subscription at the bottom of the message.

Dale County Sheriff’s Office Launches New Website Feature

 

The Dale County Sheriff’s Office launched a website in July 2015.

 

Our Website – www.daleso.com  – provides details on all aspects of the Sheriff’s Office. One of our goals when developing the new Website was to provide a centralized location for current information such as press releases and where sex offenders are living in the county.

 

We are pleased to announce that we have now added a jail roster to the site. We invite the community to visit our site at www.daleso.com/roster_choose.php to view the new jail roster. 

Having the jail roster online will allow the public to view photos and booking details for individuals in the jail as well as those released within the last 48 hours.

 

For those who are signed up to receive email/text notifications from our office who are interested in receiving a daily (as needed) roster update, please change your subscription to include the new Inmate Roster option (www.daleso.com/alerts_lookup.php). The upgraded text alert system will use either a new five-digit code (96167) or the ten-digit telephone number used previously (470-219-3777).

 

 

For more information about the Website please email info@daleso.com,  or visit www.daleso.com.
