Nixle Community Alerts

Nixle - Receive Community Alerts Via Text Message and Email


The Guilderland Police have partnered with Nixle to provide free alerts and notifications by text and email.

Nixle has been used around the country to help find missing seniors or children; evacuate flooded areas, alert community of criminal activity, emergency road closures, and other events that impact travel and public safety.

The power of the Nixle system is also its diversity of content, allowing not only those types of emergency alerts, but informing residents of wanted persons and arrests, important community events, and other relevant "want to know" information.
