Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re joining forces with the City of Phoenix and the Phoenix Police Department. As the capital of Arizona and the sixth largest city in the United States, this is an exciting partnership that will better connect Phoenix residents to both their city and police at a hyperlocal level.
Led by Phoenix Chief of Police Daniel Garcia, this integration will enable the Phoenix Police Department to use Nextdoor to disseminate information to Phoenix residents quickly and effectively.
“We’re going to create neighborhoods that we can identify and communicate with – a lot of areas we maybe didn’t have communication with before,” says Phoenix Police Chief Daniel Garcia. “This is a different way for residents to communicate with us.”
More than 406 neighborhoods, representing nearly 80% of the City of Phoenix, have already started Nextdoor websites.
Phoenix joins other progressive cities like New York, Los Angeles, Houston, and Austin that have partnered with Nextdoor to make their local neighborhoods stronger and safer places to call home.
You can join or start your own Nextdoor neighborhood here.
