Moving Into 21st Century - Chicago Police To Text And Email Alerts

The Chicago Police have announced that they have set up a service that sends text messages and email alerts from everything to child abductions to traffic jams.  The City signed up with Nixle, a free service that sends text messages and email messages to registered users.  The service went live in Chicago on Sunday.  About 6,000 people had signed up for the service by the time it went live yesterday.  Users can sign up to receive messages for their neighborhood, their child's school, or citywide.  The messages may also include photographs, such as for alerts involving missing persons or abducted children.  Roughly 3,600 police departments and public service agencies have signed up with Nixle since it started last year.  Last year the Chicago Police launched their own Facebook page called Blog 501.
