Dunwoody Residents Can Now Receive Real Time Public Safety Messages Through Nixle


The Dunwoody Police Department has partnered with Nixle to implement its
Community Notification System to alert residents in real-time for localized emergency
situations and relevant community advisories.
As a resident, there are several simple ways to register:

  1. Text your ZIPCODE to 888777 from your mobile phone
  2. Go to https://local.nixle.com/dunwoody-police-department/
    Once registered, residents will receive a confirmation text to their mobile device.
    Residents may also customize their alert settings by going to www.nixle.com and
    creating a User Profile.

The service is secure, reliable, and easy to use for our organization. Nixle replaces our
prior alert system, CodeRED, so residents who were previously registered on
CodeRED will need to register with Nixle.
All Alerts will be targeted geographically, allowing residents to receive localized,
relevant alerts from the Dunwoody Police Department. Nixle Alerts can be sent via
Text, Email, Web, and the Nixle Mobile App in an instant. Nixle is partnered with
NLETS for unmatched data security, as well as the National Center for Missing and
Exploited Children, the National Blue Alert Network, and Google for unmatched
reach and two-way information exchange.
