Sheriff’s Office Launches NIXLE Community Information Service
Sheriff Ed Prieto is pleased to announce the implementation of a new communications service (NIXLE) that allows the Sheriff’s Office to send important, valuable community information directly to residents who subscribe to the FREE service.
Using NIXLE, the Sheriff’s Office can create and publish messages which can be delivered to registered residents instantly via cell phone text message and/or email. Notifications can also be accessed online at Nixle’s web site at www.nixle.com. Messages may include important advisories, missing person alerts, real time emergency information, suspect descriptions, as well as other relevant safety and community event information.
Residents decide from which local agencies they want to receive information and can also select the method in which alerts are received; email, text message, or web based. Depending on the alert, they can be sent to all registered users or they may be limited to specific geographic areas where the incident is occurring.
Residents of Yolo County are encouraged to register now at the company’s main website: www.nixle.com, where you can also access their Frequently Asked Questions. Or you can register directly on the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office webpage: www.yolocountysheriff.com under “Outreach”.
New and innovative ways to better communicate with the public continue to evolve and the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office believes this service will allow our county members to stay informed in the most convenient, reliable way possible. An aware and well informed citizen base can greatly assist in
crime prevention efforts. Please join us in this information sharing process and assist us by getting the word out to fellow residents, neighbors, and friends.
If you would like more information, please contact Mashan Wolfe at the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office by emailing her at (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by telephone (530-747-5421).
