I want to stay informed about crime and other activities and events taking place in my community. What is the best way to do that?
The Southern Pines Police Department utilizes a community information service known as “NIXLE”. Through the use of technology, information about crime and other activities and events taking place in your community can be sent to your cell phone by text message, by email, or over the web. The secure manner in which this information is distributed ensures that the information you receive can be trusted and is geographically relevant. Your account can be customized so you receive information that matters most to you. There are four types of messages that are broadcast:
1. Alerts (many would refer to this as an emergency type alert)
2. Advisories (less urgent need to know information)
3. Community Information (day to day neighborhood community information)
4. Traffic (localized road closure information).
