The LAPD offers a free service called Nixle that allows L.A. residents to sign up to receive messages directly from the Police on crime, traffic, missing persons, emergencies, and other public safety information.

Residents can sign up online to receive the updates by text message to their phones, or by email, or both. They can sign up for bulletins based on ZIP code and can sign up for multiple locations so they can keep up to date on traffic, crime and emergencies at their home, workplace, or homes of relatives.

Mission Division has recently started utilizing Nixle, and now has the ability to publish information to Nixle users.  Please encourage others to log on to Nixle and get up to date information on what is occurring in the area.
