Sheriff's Office Offers New Communications Service
web posted February 27, 2013
COUNTY – The Edgefield County Sheriff’s
Office will utilize a new communications service, effective March 1,
2013, that allows them to send important, valuable community
information directly to residents using the latest technology.
The Nixle Community Information Service allows us to create and publish
to be delivered to subscribed residents instantly via cell phone text
message and/or email. Notifications can also be accessed online at
Nixle’s web site at www.nixle.com.
Messages may include severe weather, most wanted, and criminal
activities, as well as other relevant safety and community event
The service is secure, reliable and easy to use.
The messages can be sent specifically to residents registered within a
1/4 mile radius, giving them the opportunity to receive trustworthy
information relevant only to their neighborhood. Residents decide from
which local agencies they want to receive information. Subscribers can
also choose the way in which alerts are received, whether it is by
email, text message, or over the web.
Nixle builds on the foundations of other public-to-public communication
services, such as Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace, but adds a key
component: security. When citizens receive information from The
Edgefield County Sheriff's Office via Nixle, they know it can be
Residents of Edgefield County (ZIP Codes 29824, 29832, 29847, 29860,
29129, 29835, and 29821) and those in neighboring communities can
immediately begin receiving pertinent information via text message,
email, and web by registering at www.nixle.com.
