PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Police Department has partnered with Nextdoor.com, a private social networking site for neighborhoods, in an effort to get more feedback and information from citizens.

"It's exciting," said Phoenix Police Chief Daniel Garcia. "We already have over 400 neighborhoods that have signed up. That's 80 percent of the city.

"People can communicate with us without fearing retaliation, in English or Spanish. This is a very positive program."

The site allows residents to create private websites for their own neighborhood. In addition to having the opportunity to exchange information, share news and upcoming neighborhood events, Nextdoor participants will receive messages from the Police, Neighborhood Services and Public Works departments.

"It's a way to make our neighborhoods safer and build stronger bonds within the communities," said Garcia.
