The Township of Ocean Police Department supplemented Code Red Reverse 9-1-1 system with a web based service called Nixle. The Nixle service replaced the WEBNET service previously offered by the department. Nixle is a secure communication platform in which our police department can instantly connect with residents via TEXT MESSAGE and E-MAIL alerts. All information is disseminated in a trusted, reliable, and geographically targeted manner.
Information we publish to Nixle is edited and distributed by the Crime Prevention Unit and the Criminal Investigation Bureau of the department. The goal of the program is to distribute accurate, timely information to members of the community, so they may be informed and assist the police in maintaining a safe environment within the community. Nixle will allow the police department to instantly release information concerning public safety, traffic related matters, as well as crime prevention tips, and updates concerning criminal activity within defined geographical boundaries. This allows the department to get important information right down to the neighborhood level. To register for the secure Nixle Service go to www.nixle.com.
Any questions about Nixle can be directed to the Social Media Officer at 732-531-1800 Ext. 2231.
