The Grayson County Sheriff’s Department has launched a new Community Information Service designed to deliver important and timely information to residents in our area using the latest technology.

This service, Nixle, delivers trustworthy and important neighborhood-level public safety and community event notifications instantly sent to you by cell phone text message, email and web. There is NO Spam or Advertising.

Nixle is available at no cost (standard text message rates apply for cell phone subscribers who do not have text plans with their cell phone providers).

The service is simple to use, reliable and trusted.

Register now and learn more at http://www.nixle.com/.

We would ask that you tell your friends and neighbors about this new service and recommend that they register to receive neighborhood information.

Stay connected to your world, from the public safety alerts that are relevant to you to the important neighborhood advisories you want to know about, and other valuable community information. You decide what information you want and whether you want it sent to your cell phone, email, or just simply over the web.
