Police add web messaging

 
 
Olathe police are starting a web-based communication system that allows them to send messages to citizens.

Many other police departments, governments and agencies nationwide have adopted the new Nixle system in the last two years, but few in the metropolitan area use it, Olathe police say.

Olathe now does, as do the police departments in Merriam and Lee’s Summit, said Olathe Police Sgt. John Roland.

“We want to invite everyone and anyone,” he said. “It’s a great tool and we’re excited about it.”

People can register for the service at www.nixle.com.

They can get messages on such things as critical incidents, wanted persons, crime trends and missing and endangered persons.

There are four different types of messages: alerts, advisories, community messages and traffic advisories, Roland said.

Alerts are items that may require some action, such as staying indoors or looking for someone. Advisory items are “want to know” informative items and community messages about things like crime prevention tips and law enforcement events.

Messages related to a specific neighborhood can be targeted for those registered within a quarter mile radius, or messages can be sent citywide.

The information can be received online and by e-mail for free or on mobile phones as part of text messaging plans. They system is simple to use and there are no junk messages, Roland said.

For more information, go to www.nixle.com and click FAQs on the bottom of the page, or call Roland at 913-971-6728.
