RAHWAY — The Rahway Police Department has begun using a new communications service to allow it to send important community information directly to residents using the latest technology.

The Nixle Community Information Service allows police to create and publish messages to be delivered to subscribed residents instantly via cell phone text message and/or email. Notifications can also be accessed online at Nixle’s web site at www.nixle.com.

Messages may include construction and road closure information as well as alerts and other relevant safety and community event information. This service is reliable and free to use, though standard text messaging rates do apply.

The messages can be sent specifically to residents registered within a quarter mile radius, giving them the opportunity to receive trustworthy information relevant only to their neighborhood. Residents decide from which local agencies they want to receive information. Subscribers can also choose the way in which alerts are received, whether it is by email, text message, or over the web.

Nixle builds on the foundations of other public-to-public communication services, such as Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace, but adds a key component: security. When citizens receive information from Rahway Police via Nixle, they know it can be trusted.

Residents of Rahway and those in neighboring communities can immediately begin receiving pertinent information via text message, email, and web by registering at www.nixle.com.
