The Hemet Police Department Adopts Nextdoor, the Private Social Network for Neighborhoods

This Partnership Will Enable the Hemet Police Department to Communicate with Residents and Facilitate Virtual Neighborhood Watch

Hemet, California. – 08/28/2014 – The Hemet Police Department announced a partnership with Nextdoor today (, the private social network for neighborhoods, to build stronger, safer communities with the help of residents.

This collaboration with Nextdoor will enable the Hemet Police Department to communicate online with the City of Hemet neighborhoods. Residents and police will be able to work together to improve safety and strengthen neighborhood watch efforts.

“We have always invested in innovative ways to increase safety for our residents,” said Hemet Police Chief David Brown. “With Nextdoor, we can help empower neighbors to keep their communities safe and connected and give them the ability to collaborate on virtual neighborhood watch efforts.”

Nextdoor has already proven to be an essential and well-adopted tool for the residents. 20 City of Hemet neighborhoods have started Nextdoor websites.

With Nextdoor, Hemet residents can join private neighborhood websites to share information, including neighborhood public safety issues, community events and activities, local services, and even lost pets. The Hemet Police Department will be able to post information, such as safety tips and crime alerts, to Nextdoor websites within the city.

Nextdoor is free for residents and the Police Department. Each City of Hemet neighborhood has its own private Nextdoor neighborhood website, accessible only to residents who verify that they live in the neighborhood. Neighborhoods establish and self-manage their own Nextdoor websites and the Police Department will not be able to access residents’ websites, contact information, or content. Information shared on Nextdoor is password protected and cannot be accessed by search engines.

Those interested in joining their neighborhood’s Nextdoor website can visit and enter their address. If residents have questions about their Nextdoor website, please visit
