Cushing – The Cushing Police Department is launching a new Community Information Service designed to deliver important and timely information to residents in our area using the latest technology.

This service, created by Nixle, LLC delivers trustworthy and important neighborhood-level public safety and community event notifications by web, e-mail, and cell phone.

Residents of Cushing can now take advantage of Nixle! Nixle is a community information service that alerts you to public safety threats and community events via web, e-mail, and phone. Sign up at www.nixle.com to register.  Register now and learn more at www.nixle.com.  Then share this new service with friends and neighbors to spread the word!

Nixle is a new community information service provider built exclusively to provide secure reliable communications.  Its authenticated service connects municipal agencies  to residents in real time, delivering information to geographically targeted consumers over their cell phones (via text messages), through e-mails and through Web access.  Nixle is offered at no cost to all governments, their agencies and organizations, nongovernmental organizations and consumers.

For now, Cushing residents will be able to receive police-related information and some municipal government information via Nixle. Nixle is completely free, simple, and trusted.

Craig Mitnick, the founder and CEO of Nixle, said Nixle differs from current services such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter, which provides unauthenticated platforms for connection.  Nixle solves that problem by providing a single standardized service for consumers to receive immediate and credible neighborhood-level public safety and community information.

“Nixle is a first-of-its-kind tool for communities that need to provide critical information to residents,” said Craig Mitnick, founder and CEO.  “When it comes to public safety information, you have to trust the source.  Residents of Cushing can rest easy that the local messages received are authentic.”
