CINCINNATI -- Hamilton County's newest sheriff has joined the digital era in hopes of adding to his bag of law enforcement tools.

Jim Neil announced he will be entering the world of social media through Facebook, Twitter, blogs and and an updated website.

“No longer is this office stuck in the dark ages of technology,” said Neil. “We are changing with the times, and using every tool available to fight crime and serve the public.”

The updated website has new ways to report crimes and Neil's Facebook and Twitter accounts will have information regularly to help keep the community informed.

“We used to just think of fighting crime with a firearm or handcuffs," said Neil. "Today we fight crimes with a text, email, and tweet!"
