The State Police Is Nextdoor

These are exciting times! The Massachusetts State Police has joined NextDoor – a free private social network for neighborhood communities that allows users to connect with people who live in their own and nearby neighborhoods.

Nextdoor was launched in 2011 and is based in San Francisco, CA. Nextdoor neighborhood social networking became so popular that it caught on across the country, and, as of today, Nextdoor is available in the US, the Netherlands, the UK and Germany.

Nextdoor’s celebrated feature is it’s ability to assist in crime-spotting, but that’s not all it does…

Nextdoor is the best way to stay in the know about what’s going on in your neighborhood—whether it’s finding a last-minute babysitter, learning about an upcoming block party, or hearing about a rash of car break-ins. There are so many ways neighbors can help each other, and Nextdoor provides you with an easier way to connect with them.
