CPD Implements Nixle

Date: August 20th, 2013

The Crowley Police Department will utilize a new communications service, effective August 19, 2013, that allows us to send important, valuable community information directly to residents using the latest technology.

The Nixle Community Information Service allows us to create and publish messages to be delivered to subscribed residents instantly via cell phone text message and/or email. Notifications can also be accessed online at Nixle’s web site at

Messages may include critical emergency notifications as well as other relevant safety and community event information.

“This tool has been tested in our parish and is a valuable resource to keep our citizens up to date with various occurrences” Chief K.P. Gibson.

The service is secure, reliable and easy to use for our group.

The messages can be sent specifically to residents registered within a ¼ mile radius, giving them the opportunity to receive trustworthy information relevant only to their neighborhood. Residents decide from which local agencies they want to receive information. Subscribers can also choose the way in which alerts are received, whether it is by email, text message, or over the web.

Residents of Crowley, Louisiana and those in neighboring communities can immediately begin receiving pertinent information via text message, email, and web by registering at

We are very excited to have you experience it for yourself.
