The St. Petersburg Police Department Joined Nextdoor!

St. Pete Police begin using Nextdoor (www.nextdoor.com), the private social network for neighborhoods, to improve citywide and neighbor-to-neighbor communications.
 
The Police Department’s Community Service Officers will be assigned to specific Nextdoor neighborhoods and  will be able to work together to increase safety and strengthen virtual neighborhood watch. Residents will be able to send messages directly to that officer.

 “From the perspective of a community based policing model, this alliance is a natural extension of our Park, Walk and Talk program and will allow us to connect online more effectively with our neighborhoods,” said Anthony Holloway, Chief of Police.

More than 95 neighborhoods, representing over 70 percent of the neighborhoods in St. Petersburg, have started Nextdoor websites.

Nextdoor is the free and private social network for neighborhoods. On Nextdoor, neighbors create websites for their neighborhoods where they can ask questions, get to know one another, exchange local advice and recommendations and share important safety information.

Thousands of neighborhoods are already using Nextdoor to do the following:

  1. Find trustworthy local resources, such as babysitters, plumbers, and dentists
  2. Report suspicious activity and local crime through virtual neighborhood watch
  3. Organize neighborhood events, such as garage sales and block parties
  4. Get assistance to find lost pets and missing packages
  5. Promote items for sale/free and inquire about items for purchase.

To join your private neighborhood social network, please visit www.nextdoor.com to get started.
