Anaheim Police Department announced today a partnership with Nextdoor (www.nextdoor.com), the private social network for neighborhoods, to build stronger, safer communities with the help of residents.


This integration with Nextdoor will enable the Anaheim Police Department to communicate online with Anaheim neighborhoods. Residents and police will be able to work together to improve safety and strengthen neighborhood watch efforts. “We are committed to engaging our community through innovative means to increase safety for our residents” said Sgt. Daron Wyatt. “With Nextdoor, we can help empower neighbors to keep their communities safe and connected and give them the ability to collaborate on virtual neighborhood watch efforts.”


Already Nextdoor has proven to be an essential and well-adopted tool for Anaheim residents. 82 Anaheim neighborhoods have started Nextdoor websites. With Nextdoor, Anaheim residents can join private neighborhood websites to share information, including neighborhood public safety issues, community events and activities, local services, and even lost pets. The Anaheim Police Department will be able to post information, such as safety tips and crime alerts, to Nextdoor websites within the city.


Nextdoor is free for residents and the Police Department. Each Anaheim neighborhood has its own private Nextdoor neighborhood website, accessible only to residents who verify that they live in the neighborhood. Neighborhoods establish and self-manage their own Nextdoor websites and the Police Department will not be able to access residents’ websites, contact information, or content. Information shared on Nextdoor is password protected and cannot be accessed by search engines.


Those interested in joining their neighborhood’s Nextdoor website can visit www.nextdoor.com and enter their address. If residents have questions about their Nextdoor website, please visit help.nextdoor.com.
