MESA COUNTY, Colo. — The Mesa County Sheriff’s Office is excited to announce the launch of a new interactive website and mobile app to give community members an easier, more effective way to stay informed and help fight crime.
The new Mesa County Sheriff’s Office CRIMEWATCH website was developed in partnership with CRIMEWATCH Technologies and is part of the CRIMEWATCH Network (crimewatch.net).

I’m pleased the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office can offer this new public safety tool and excited about its potential. We hope community members will feel empowered with this new technology to partner with us in finding new ways to reduce crime and create safer neighborhoods,” said Sheriff Matt Lewis.
