  • The St. Johnsville Police Department will utilize a new communications service, effective immediately, to allow officers to send important, valuable community information directly to residents using the latest technology.
    The Nixle Community Information Service will allow police to create and publish messages to be delivered to subscribed residents instantly via cell phone text message and/or e-mail.
    Notifications can also be accessed online at Nixle’s website at www.nixle.com.
    Messages may include traffic alerts, missing persons notices and public safety messages, as well as other relevant safety and community event information.
    Police said the service is secure, reliable and easy to use.
    Residents decide from which agencies they want to receive information. Subscribers can also choose the way in which alerts are received, whether it is by e-mail, text message or over the Web.
    Nixle builds on the foundations of other public-to-public communication services, such as Twitter, Facebook and MySpace, but adds a key component: security.
    Police said when citizens receive information via Nixle, they know it can be trusted.
    St. Johnsville residents and those in neighboring communities can immediately begin receiving pertinent information via text message, e-mail and Web by registering at www.nixle.com.
