The City of Woodland Police Department is excited to announce its online presence on Nextdoor (www.nextdoor.com), the free and private social network for neighborhoods, to build stronger, safer communities with the help of residents.
This integration with Nextdoor will enable the Woodland Police Department to communicate online with Woodland neighborhoods. Residents and the Woodland Police Department will be able to work together to increase safety and strengthen virtual neighborhood watch.
Nextdoor has proven to be an essential and well-adopted tool, both locally in Woodland as well as nationally, with one-in-four neighborhoods using Nextdoor across the country.
With Nextdoor, Woodland residents can create private neighborhood websites to share information, including neighborhood public safety issues, community events and activities, local services, and even lost pets.
The Woodland Police Department will be able to share helpful information with Nextdoor members, such as important crime alerts, emergency notifications, safety precautions and tips, details for events and crime watch meetings, and updates on activity affecting the local area.
Nextdoor is free for residents and the Woodland Police Department. Each Woodland neighborhood has its own private Nextdoor neighborhood website, accessible only to residents of that neighborhood. All members must verify that they live within the neighborhood before joining Nextdoor. Information shared on Nextdoor is password-protected and cannot be accessed by Google or other search engines.
Currently there are over 950 Woodland residents on Nextdoor. Those interested in joining their neighborhood’s Nextdoor website can visit www.nextdoor.com and enter their address. Make sure to subscribe to the Woodland Police Department after signing up to get all the latest information and updates, since Woodland Police Staff will not be able to access residents’ websites, contact information, or content.
Nextdoor is not the appropriate way to request emergency services, police services, report criminal or suspicious activity, file a report, etc. If you require emergency services, or wish to report suspicious activity, please call 911. For non-emergency needs, please call 666-2411.
