Sheriff's Office mobile WebCAD
The Monroe County Sheriff's Office now has a mobile version of its online WebCAD for smartphones.
WebCAD shows live calls for service as deputies respond, and is meant to let people know what is happening, says spokeswoman Deputy Becky Herrin.
"If someone hears a siren in their neighborhood, they can look online and see what type of call might be taking place," Herrin said. Information on car wrecks is more specific, with details about road conditions, she said.
The mobile version of WebCAD can be found at: http://www.keysso.net/WebCAD/mWebCad.htm.
The Sheriff's Office also can be followed on Twitter @mcsonews and Facebook at MCSO -- Florida Keys.

Special meeting about marina
The Monroe County Parks and Recreation Advisory Board invites county residents to a special, public meeting on Oct. 7 to discuss the future of Rowell's Marina. It will be held at 6 p.m. at the Murray Nelson Government Center, 102050 Overseas Highway in Key Largo.
The purpose of the meeting is to start developing a plan for the use of the property once the county buys it, organizers said. County commissioners have decided to buy the property for $5 million, thought the purchase is contingent on a clean title and environmental report and having a plan for expenses.
