Using Nextdoor, the Mobile Police Department and residents have successfully been working together to build stronger, safer neighborhoods.
To celebrate the success of the partnership and encourage even more residents to join Nextdoor, the police department plans to give a Nextdoor sign to every neighborhood in Mobile that launches a Nextdoor website.
Inspired to replace old neighborhood watch signs across the city, the Mobile Police Department decided to design their own Nextdoor sign promoting our partnership.
It wasn’t long until their vision became a reality: working with the Traffic Engineering Department within the City of Mobile, the police department guaranteed that their signs would be high-quality, reflective, road-safe signs that will stand up to inclement weather. All told, the Mobile Police Department created 100 signs.
The response was incredible. Within days of the police department’s announcement of the program, more than 35 neighborhoods requested at least one sign for their community. A few neighborhoods requested multiple signs – one neighborhood requested a sign for every entrance to their neighborhood, asking for ten signs in total!
We’re excited to see our partners finding new, innovative ways to share Nextdoor with their residents – both online and offline!
