Message from Montgomery Police: Changes to Nixle Platform

Posted on April 28, 2020

The purpose of this message is to notify you of changes to the Nixle communication platform that are planned to occur at some point this week.

The Montgomery Township Police Department utilizes Nixle to forward important information regarding police investigations, road closures, public announcements, as well as messages from our various township departments and elected officials.

Many subscribers currently receive both text message; as well as, email notifications. We have been notified by Nixle that moving forward if a subscriber has an email address linked to their profile, that subscriber will receive email notifications ONLY. As such, if you prefer to receive Nixle notifications via text message, you must update your Nixle account to remove your email address.

If you signed up just by texting your zip code to 888777 and giving your email address when prompted, you can send STOP to 888777 and resubscribe just with your cell phone number. 

You may instead create a free full user account with password by signing up at https://local.nixle.com/montgomery-police/. This is recommended.

These changes to the Nixle system are beyond our control and we plan to explore other potential communication products to keep you informed to the best of our ability. We will notify you in advance if any communication platform changes are planned.
