Social Media

The Norton Shores Police Department utilizes social media platforms to keep the residents of Norton Shores well-informed. Social media has proven to be an effective tool in advising people of emergency situations including active crimes and traffic alerts. We also utilize social media to inform the public of the various activities that we are involved with. Facebook and Nixle are the two platforms we use to provide information to residents and media.

Nixle is a messaging alert system that residents can subscribe to. When a message is dispatched, the subscriber will receive an alert via text and/or email to receive further details as to what is occurring near their home. NSPD utilizes Nixle for all press releases, report traffic issues on our roadways, and share crime prevention information.
