Located an hour northwest of Detroit and just south of Flint, MI, Grand Blanc Township is home to more than 37,000 residents. Currently, 40 neighborhoods there have launched Nextdoor websites, representing nearly 70% of the neighborhoods across the township.
The Grand Blanc Township Police Department announced their partnership on February 2, 2017, and hold a distinct honor: they are the 2,000th public agency to partner with Nextdoor to better communicate with residents and help create stronger, safer, and happier places to call home.
Since the official launch of Nextdoor for Public Agencies in October 2014, more than 2,000 public agencies have joined the platform, primarily police departments. Agencies have used Nextdoor for everything from reducing crime, to communicating during disasters, finding volunteers to staff warming centers during the holidays, and plan community events.
We’re proud to welcome the Grand Blanc Township Police Department to Nextdoor, and we’re honored to play a small role in helping police departments across the country connect and communicate with their residents. Here’s to many more.
