This integration with Nextdoor will enable the Medford Police Department to communicate online with Medford neighborhoods. Residents and Medford Police Department will be able to work together to increase safety and strengthen virtual neighborhood watch.
Nextdoor has proven to be an essential and well-adopted tool, both locally in Medford as well as nationally, with more than 40% of neighborhoods using Nextdoor across the country.
With Nextdoor, Medford residents can create private neighborhood websites to share information, including neighborhood public safety issues, community events and activities, local services, and even lost pets.
The Medford Police Department will be able to share helpful information with Nextdoor members, such as important crime alerts, emergency notifications, safety precautions and tips, details for events and crime watch meetings, and updates on activity affecting the local area to Nextdoor websites within Medford. However, the Medford Police Department will not be able to access residents’ websites, contact information, or content. Your Nextdoor neighborhood conversation remains private to you and your neighbors; we will only be able to see your replies to our posts, and private messages that you send directly to us.
Nextdoor is free for residents and the Medford Police Department. Each Medford neighborhood has its own private Nextdoor neighborhood website, accessible only to residents of that neighborhood. Neighborhoods establish and self-manage their own Nextdoor website. All members must verify that they live within the neighborhood before joining Nextdoor. Information shared on Nextdoor is password-protected and cannot be accessed by Google or other search engines.
Those interested in joining their neighborhood’s Nextdoor website can visit www.nextdoor.com and enter their address. If residents have questions about their Nextdoor website, please visit help.nextdoor.com.
We look forward to connecting with you on Nextdoor to build stronger, safer neighborhoods throughout Medford .
