The Village of Kenmore is launching a new Community Information Service designed to deliver important and timely information to residents in our area using the latest technology.
Nixle is a new community information service provider built exclusively to provide secure and reliable communications. Its authenticated service connects municipal agencies and community organizations to residents in real time, delivering information to geographically targeted consumers over their cell phones (via text messages), through e-mails and through Web access.
Residents of Kenmore can now take advantage of Nixle - a community information service that alerts you to public safety threats and community events. Sign up at www.nixle.com to register. There’s no charge to sign up and all information is confidential. Residents of Kenmore can rest easy knowing that the local messages they receive are authentic as all information will be provided directly through the Kenmore Police Department.
Police Chief Carl LaCorte is excited to introduce this program to the public. “I have long believed that the highest standard for public safety is achieved when the police and the community work together. This program will allow us to better facilitate this partnership.”
For now, Kenmore residents will be able to receive police-related information and municipal government information via Nixle. Channels providing other kinds of information are expected to be introduced in the future.
Craig Mitnick, the founder and CEO of Nixle, said Nixle differs from current services such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter, which provide unauthenticated platforms for connections. Nixle solves that problem by providing a single standardized service for consumers to receive immediate and credible neighborhood-level public safety and community information.
For more information, please contact the Kenmore Police Department at (716) 875-1234.
