OKLAHOMA CITY –  Oklahoma City’s neighborhoods can now be better connected to city officials with the use of a social media network.

Currently, more than 200 neighborhoods in Oklahoma City use Nextdoor, a free and private social media network.

Now, Oklahoma City has created a new Nextdoor profile to provide news, services, programs, events, emergency notifications and other information available from the city.

“Nextdoor provides more avenues for our residents to easily and effectively connect with City departments and each other about issues that matter in their neighborhoods,” said Mayor Mick Cornett. “Residents and the Oklahoma City Police Department can also use Nextdoor to work together to enhance neighborhood safety.”

“The Police Department is excited about the use of Nextdoor in our City. It is important for us to stay engaged with our community on a daily basis as well as continue to use new social media methods to reach our public,” said Police Chief Bill Citty. “ Nextdoor accomplishes both of these goals, while at the same time providing important information to specific neighborhoods to help keep people safe.”
