Police offer new notification system

The Rockford Police Department has launched NIXLE, a community notification system, to provide important information to residents instantly through e-mail and, cell phone text messages.

The NIXLE system is currently being used in other cities across the country with great success. Chief Dave Jones feels that bringing NIXLE to Rockford is valuable because it allows the Police and other City Departments to provide real time information about events that occur in the City such as accidents or street closings. “We are able to notify residents immediately if a child is lost, or a crime is occurring within the City. This real time communication will benefit everyone,” Jones said.

The Police Department encourages everyone to enroll in Nixle. The service is free of charge. Enrollment information is available at Nixle.com or the City of Rockford Website www. Rockford.mi.us.
