Nixle - Emergency Notification Service

The Denville Police Department has teamed up with Nixle in order to notify residents of important and valuable information. When we create and publish messages through the Nixle Community Information Service, Nixle will deliver this information to you instantly as a text message and/or e-mail, depending on which notifications you choose to receive. Notifications can also be accessed online at Nixle's website.

Messages may include information on recent crimes, descriptions of missing endangered persons, road closures and other relevant safety and community event information. Each message will be assigned one of three notification categories:

  • Alert - time sensitive, need-to-know information that may require proactive action on your part.
  • Advisory - need-to-know information that is not time sensitive.
  • Community - messages that are more informational in nature.

The service is reliable and spam free. More importantly, there are no hidden costs to sign up and use the service.  When signing up for the service, you decide what type of notifications you want to receive and whether you will receive them by text message or e-mail.
