Sheriff’s Department launches NIXLE alert system

From page A5 | February 07, 2014 |

Yolo County Sheriff Ed Prieto announced Monday the implementation of a new communications service (NIXLE) that allows the Sheriff’s Department to send community information directly to residents who subscribe to the free service.

Using NIXLE, the Sheriff’s Department can create and publish messages that can be delivered to registered residents instantly via cell phone text message or email. Notifications also may be accessed online at Nixle’s website, 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 wish to receive information and also can select the method in which alerts are received: email, text message or web-based alerts. 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 invited to register now at the company’s main website, www.nixle.com, where they can access a list of frequently asked questions. Or, they can register directly on the Yolo County Sheriff’s Department website, www.yolocountysheriff.com, under “Outreach.”

New and innovative ways to better communicate with the public continue to evolve, and the Yolo County Sheriff’s Department believes this service will allow residents to stay informed in the most convenient, reliable way possible.

“An aware and well-informed citizen base can greatly assist in crime prevention efforts,” a news release said. “Please join us in this information-sharing process and assist us by getting the word out to fellow residents, neighbors and friends.”
