Nixle Community Notification

New For 2010, the Township of Ocean Police Department will be supplementing the current Code Red Reverse 9-1-1 system that has been in use for the past several years, with a web based service called Nixle. The Nixle service will replace the WEBNET service previously offered by the department. Neighboring towns have already signed on with the FREE Nixle service and have been successfully utilizing the service. Nixle is a secure communication platform in which our police department can instantly connect with residents via TEXT MESSAGE and E-MAIL alerts. All information is disseminated in a trusted, reliable, and geographically targeted manner.

Information we publish to Nixle is edited and distributed by the Crime Prevention Unit and the Criminal Investigation Bureau of the department. The goal of the program is to distribute accurate, timely information to members of the community, so they may be informed and assist the police in maintaining a safe environment within the community. Nixle will allow the police department to instantly release information concerning public safety, traffic related matters, as well as crime prevention tips, and updates concerning criminal activity within defined geographical boundries. This allows the department to get important information right down to the neighborhood level. To register for the secure Nixle Service go to
