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
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.
