Help Spread The Word About Nixle! See email for details.

Have you heard the saying, “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink?” In other words you can present a great opportunity to someone but cannot force them to implement it. Well I have a different view on the matter – feed the horse salt! As a law enforcement officer it’s my job to not only lead everyone to the knowledge of crime prevention but to make citizens thirsty for all the knowledge they can absorb. Armed with inexpensive but sound advice citizens begin to implement safety into their daily lives and remove opportunities away from criminals.

The Altamonte Springs Police Department currently has 267 citizens registered into Nixle. With over 43,000 residents, thousands of business owners, and an estimated 100,000 vehicles traveling down SR 436 in a given day, a very low percentage of people are receiving the daily safety tips. My goal is to increase the number of Nixle users to 500 in the next 30 days. If each person receiving this email will encourage one friend or family member to register at we will exceed our goal! By the way you do not have to reside or own a business in the city limits of Altamonte Springs in order to register under our site. Perhaps a college student lives in Altamonte Springs and his/her parents would like to keep informed of what’s happening in our community. Even though the parents may live out of state they are able to sign up as well.

Have a great day – stay safe!
