NIXLE ALERTING SYSTEM

 

Recently the Norwood Police Department has joined with a company called Nixle to provide text alerts to cell phones and emails to computers or PDA's, to add another way of alerting our residents with information.  The Norwood Police has had reverse 911 for a couple of years, but didn't have the ability to make cellular text alerts or mass email warnings.  Now residents can be at work or on vacation and still get news or information concerning Norwood.  In order to receive this new service, the resident goes to www.nixle.com and logs onto the service. This service doesn't cost Norwood anything and the resident's information remains private and won't be used for anything other than Norwood alerts.  Should there be any questions, please call Chief Jeffrey Krapels office at 201-784-2964.

 

The Leroy S. Mead Post III, Closter, NJ will destroy U.S. Flags no longer serviceable in conformance to flag courtesy.  The Closter Police Department is the collection site.
