DUNWOODY, Ga. — The Dunwoody Police Department has partnered with Nixle to start a new Community Notification System that will provide real-time alerts for residents. The alerts will notify residents of any “localized emergency situations and relevant community advisories.” Officials released a press release July 19 requesting all residents to sign up for the for the daily notifications.
As a resident, there are several easy ways to register:
1. Text your ZIPCODE to 888777 from your mobile phone
Once registered, a confirmation text will be sent. Residents can visit www.nixle.com to create a user profile and customize alert settings.
“The service is secure, reliable, and easy to use for our organization,” Sgt. Robert Parsons said in a statement. “Nixle replaces our prior alert system, CodeRED, so residents who were previously registered on CodeRED will need to register with Nixle.”
Resident alerts are targeted geographically and will be sent via text, email, the Nixle mobile app, and through the web.
