New Service Allows FPD To Text, Email Information

The Florissant Police Department is utilizing a new communications service that allows the department to send important, valuable community information directly to residents using the latest technology. The service went into effect on March 4.

The Nixle Community Information Service allows residents to subscribe to receive messages from the police department instantly via cell phone text message and/or email. Notifications can also be accessed online at Nixle’s web site at

Messages may include Missing Persons/Amber Alerts, road closures and other relevant safety and community event information.
