Citizen Alerts


Polk County uses Alert Polk - a critical communications system shared with most public safety operations across the State of Florida - to inform residents about public safety threats and concerns. During situations that may affect the health, safety, and welfare of Polk County residents, Alert Polk is used to out messages to subscribers, using their telephone numbers and email addresses.

PCSO also uses Alert Polk to notify citizens when a registered sexual predator relocates, per the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (see below).

Emergency notifications include:

• Tornadoes/Severe Weather
• Mandatory Evacuations
• Boil Water Orders
• Gas Leaks
• Sexual Predator Relocation Notices
• Critical Law Enforcement Notifications
• Hurricanes
• Hurricane Recovery Information

When you subscribe for emergency notifications, you'll receive vital updates when severe weather is threatening the county or about crime trends in your neighborhood. You'll also have the option of receiving community informational alerts.

You don't have to live in the county to register. Click here to subscribe.

These time-critical notifications will be sent directly to your home phone, cell phone, or email address. When you register, please be aware that phone carrier charges may apply for all alert messages and data. You will only receive alerts that affect the address you register.
