The Modesto Police Department has a partnership with Nextdoor (www.nextdoor.com), the private social network for neighborhoods, to build stronger, safer communities with the help of residents.
This integration with Nextdoor will enable police personnel to communicate online with Modesto neighborhoods. Residents and police will be able to work together to improve safety and strengthen neighborhood watch efforts.
Already Nextdoor has proven to be an essential and well-adopted tool for residents citywide. Many neighborhoods have already started Nextdoor websites.
With Nextdoor, Modesto residents can join private neighborhood websites to share information, including neighborhood public safety issues, community events and activities, local services, and even lost pets. The Modesto Police Department 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 Police Department.
Each Modesto neighborhood has its own private Nextdoor 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.
How To Sign Up: Those interested in joining their neighborhood’s Nextdoor website can visit www.nextdoor.com and enter their address.
CANA’s neighborhood on the Nextdoor app is called College Manor.
