Nixle Crime Prevention and Community Info

Why Nixle
The Des Peres Department of Public Safety Crime Prevention Network has moved to Nixle. All participants that were registered with the CPSN are asked to re-register with Nixle. We moved to Nixle because it is a secure service that partners with National Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (Nlets) and the International Public Safety and Justice Network.

Until now, there has never been an authenticated and secure service that connects municipal agencies and community organizations to their residents in real-time, with the same ease and in the same way that current services such as Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter provide users with an unauthenticated platform for connections. Nixle solves this problem by providing one standardized service for consumers to receive immediate and credible neighborhood-level public safety and community information, via SMS, email, or web.
