ODPS is the first statewide agency in the Midwest, and the third in the entire country, to adopt Nextdoor.
On Nextdoor, ODPS will work with Ohio residents to improve emergency preparedness, strengthen community engagement, and recover from emergency situations. ODPS will be able to send targeted updates to specific neighborhoods, groups of neighborhoods, or sections of the state, which will be vital when communicating about an emergency isolated to one part of the state.
ODPS joins nearly 80 other local Ohio agencies on the platform including the City and Police Department of Columbus, the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, the City and Police of Cincinnati, and the Hamilton County Office of Emergency Management.
We are pleased to officially welcome ODPS to the neighborhood, and look forward to a working together to help make Ohio neighborhoods more prepared!
