SPD sees uptick in Nextdoor members - Program provides neighborhood watch on social media platform

July 24, 2014

Starkville Police Department is encouraging neighborhoods to use Nextdoor, a private social networking service for communities. Residents who have signed up for the service can invite neighbors to join, which sends out emails such as this example invitation from Tony Rook. (SDN screenshot)

About four weeks ago, Starkville Police Department hosted a community gathering about concerns of criminal activity on South Montgomery Street that filled the Starkville City Hall courtroom to capacity.

In the time since, 121 South Montgomery residents have signed up for Nextdoor, a private social network service that serves as a modern neighborhood watch.
