Service Ensures Residents Receive Timely and Accurate Information

The Millstadt (Illinois) Police Department encourages residents to sign up for Nixle notifications to receive important crime information and time sensitive alerts. With no cost to the department, taxpayers, or residents, the new Nixle Connect is a cost-effective solution for all public safety agencies throughout the country.

Nixle Connect allows Millstadt Police to communicate with the public via text/SMS, e-mail, and Internet posts at no cost. Communications can range from emergency alerts to routine day-to-day information including traffic and missing persons reports, safety tips, crime information, community outreach programs and other public safety information.

“We have been very pleased with Nixle since beginning to use it a year ago,” commented Chief of Police Ed Wilkerson. “Without a newspaper for our community, Nixle gives us a way to get crime information out to the public as well as time sensitive information. It saves us both time and money and is a vital tool in our communication efforts.”

Citizens can register to receive messages from Millstadt Police and other local agencies by sending a text message with their zip code to 888777. Online registration is also available at
