by Linda Hubbard Gulker on May 9, 2012

The Menlo Park Police Department  is revamping its communications services and launching a Facebook page, which, according to a press release “will allow us to send important, valuable community information directly to residents using the latest technology.”

Reads the release: “The Nixle Community Information Service allows us to create and publish messages to be delivered to subscribed residents instantly via cell phone text message and/or email. Notifications can also be accessed online at Nixle’s web site. The service is secure, reliable and easy to use for our group. Messages may include police press releases, traffic alerts, programs, as well as other relevant safety and community event information.

“The messages can be sent specifically to residents registered within a 1⁄4 mile radius, giving them the opportunity to receive trustworthy information relevant only to their neighborhood. Residents decide from which local agencies they want to receive information. Subscribers can also choose the way in which alerts are received, whether it is by email, text message, or online.

“The police department encourages the public to like us on our Facebook page under the name Menlo Park PD and follow us on Twitter @MenloParkPD.Residents of the City of Menlo Park and those in neighboring communities can immediately begin receiving pertinent information via text message, email, and the web by registering at www.nixle.com. The Nixle, Facebook, and Twitter widgets are also located on the Menlo Park Police Department website.”
