[ARCHIVED] MPD adopts new program to digitally connect with community

A new private social network called Nextdoor will enable the Midland Police Department to communicate with residents and facilitate digital neighborhood watches.

MPD will launch Nextdoor at this year's National Night Out, which will take place in neighborhoods across Midland on Tuesday, Aug. 5. Nextdoor is a private social network that will enable MPD to communicate online with Midlanders and strengthen neighborhood watch efforts.

"This is another way the department is making innovative resources available our residents in order to increase their safety," said Police Chief Price Robinson. "Nextdoor will help empower neighbors to keep their communities safe and connected and give them the ability to collaborate on virtual neighborhood watch efforts."

With Nextdoor, Midland residents can join private neighborhood websites to share information, including neighborhood public safety issues, community events and activities, local services, and even lost pets. MPD will be able to post information, such as safety tips and crime alerts, to Nextdoor websites within the city.

Nextdoor is free for residents and the Midland Police Department. Each neighborhood will have its own private neighborhood website, accessible only to residents who verify that they live in the neighborhood. Neighborhoods establish and self-manage their own Nextdoor websites and the police department will not be able to access residents' websites, contact information, or content. Information shared on Nextdoor is password-protected and cannot be accessed by search engines.

Those interested in joining their neighborhood's Nextdoor website can visit www.nextdoor.com and enter their addresses. If residents have questions about their Nextdoor website, they are invited to visit help.nextdoor.com.
