Woodstock police invite residents ‘Nextdoor’

The Woodstock Police Department invites residents to connect with local law enforcement through the Nextdoor (nextdoor.com) private neighborhood social network.

The aim, officials said, is to improve citywide communications by connecting with residents at a hyper-local level. More than 6,000 Woodstock residents are already using the network: https://nextdoor.com/

Nextdoor users create private neighborhood websites to share information, officials said. Each neighborhood will have its own website, accessible only to people who live there.

Police said they would use the network to post information on public safety issues, community events and activities and local services. The service is free for residents and the city.

“We encourage our residents to join us on Nextdoor so that we can work together to promote stronger, healthier neighborhoods,” said Police Chief Calvin Moss. Information: https://bit.ly/2I3tc8w
