The Lighthouse Point Police Department is excited to announce that we have partnered with Nixle, to implement a new Community Notification System that can be utilized to alert Lighthouse Point residents, in real-time, to localized emergency situations, crime alerts, road closures, safety tips and relevant community advisories. The notifications can be sent to your phone, email, or both.
Nixle, founded in 2009, provides a mass communications hub built exclusively for government agencies to provide secure, reliable, and relevant information to residents in real-time. Today, over 8000 agencies throughout the United States rely on Nixle for community notifications and emergency communications.
There are several easy ways for Lighthouse Point residents to sign up for Nixle:
- Text your zip code to 888777 from your mobile phone.
- Download the “Nixle OneBridge” application and follow registration instructions.
- Go to http://local.nixle.com/register/ to sign up and register.
Once registered, residents will receive a confirmation text to their mobile device. All alerts will be targeted geographically, allowing residents to receive localized, relevant alerts from the Lighthouse Point Police Department.
There is no charge for registering, but standard text messaging rates associated with your mobile phone service will apply. You can opt-out at anytime by texting “STOP” to 888777.
