Nextdoor is an excellent way for us to connect with each other. It is a free, private social network specifically for your neighborhood, accessible only to residents of your neighborhood. All members must verify that they live within the neighborhood before joining Nextdoor.
Through this network, you can to talk about everyday things like local community events, recommendations for finding a babysitter or trades worker, post items for sale, and seek help to find a lost pet.
Neighborhood conversations remain private, and we cannot see the conversations between neighbors. Officers can see only “Thanks” and replies to our posts, should you choose to interact with us. We use Nextdoor to post information such as important news, services, programs, free events, crime specific to your neighborhood, and emergency notifications.
Get others in your neighborhood to sign up. This can serve as a virtual Community Watch, as well.
