NIXLE allows the Sheriff’s Office to send important and valuable community information directly to residents who subscribe to the free service.
Using NIXLE, the Sheriff’s Office can create and publish messages which will be delivered to registered residents instantly via cell phone text message and/or email. Notifications can also be accessed online at NIXLE’s website www.nixle.com.

Residents may decide from which local agencies they want to receive information and can also select the method in which alerts are received; email, text message or web-based.
