Davis Police Department Launches NIXLE Community Information Service

The Davis Police Department is now using a new communications service (NIXLE) that allows the Department to send important, valuable community information directly to residents who subscribe to the FREE service.

Using NIXLE, the Department can create and publish messages which can be delivered to registered residents instantly via cell phone text message and/or email. Notifications can also be accessed online at Nixle’s web site at www.nixle.com. Messages may include important advisories, missing person alerts, real time emergency information, suspect descriptions, as well as other relevant safety and community event information.

Residents decide from which local agencies they want to receive information and can also select the method in which alerts are received; email, text message, or web based. Depending on the alert, they can be sent to all registered users or they may be limited to specific geographic areas where the incident is occurring.

Residents of Davis, including campus residents, are encouraged to register now at the company’s main web site: www.nixle.com, where you can also access their Frequently Asked Questions. Or you can register directly on the Davis Police Department’s webpage: http://police.cityofdavis.org/.

New and innovative ways to better communicate with the public continue to evolve and the Davis Police Department believes this service will allow our community members to stay informed in the most convenient, reliable way possible. An aware and well informed citizen base can greatly assist in crime prevention efforts. Please join us in this information sharing process and assist us by getting the word out to fellow residents, neighbors, and friends.

If you would like more information, please contact Jonny Volan at the Davis Police Department by emailing him (jvolan@davispd.org) or by telephone (530-747-5421).
