Welcoming Three New Partners to the Block: Kansas City, North Las Vegas, and Franklin County!
City of Kansas City, MO
Nextdoor Co-Founder Sarah Leary speaking at the press conference in Kansas City.
On Wednesday, we announced a partnership with the City of Kansas City, Missouri including the Mayor’s Office, City Manager’s Office, and Police Department. All of these departments will use Nextdoor to send targeted messages to neighborhoods across the city, allowing them to share news, safety alerts and neighborhood events.
“We have, in every instance, pushed communication. We have, in every instance, tried to do those things where Kansas City residents can rely on neighbors,” says Mayor Sly James.
We’re honored to be included in the City’s efforts to build a stronger and safer Kansas City.
North Las Vegas Police Department
Public Information Officer Aaron Patty speaks to the press with NLVPD and Nextdoor representatives behind him.
Amidst Las Vegas’ triple digit temperatures, on Tuesday we also announced a partnership with the North Las Vegas Police Department.
When asked by a reporter if using Nextdoor helped make her feel safer, North Las Vegas Nextdoor member, Marla Foster, answered with a resounding “yes.” She continued to say, “ We use it in conjunction with our neighborhood watch. It keeps the lines of communication open.”
Franklin County, OH
Franklin County Sheriff Zach Scott interviews with local media about the partnership.
Yesterday, we also announced that we are joining forces with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, which serves the greater Columbus, Ohio area. This was an exciting partnership for Nextdoor because Franklin County is the first Sheriff’s Office in both Ohio and the Midwest to partner with Nextdoor.
Sheriff Zach Scott explained to local media why he and the entire Sheriff’s Office are excited to adopt Nextdoor.
“Nextdoor is tying people together,” he said. “In all of these neighborhoods, you are getting ready to make your neighborhoods safer because you know what your neighbors are doing, you communicate. Then safety increases and crime goes down.”
Thanks to our new city partners for making this a banner week at Nextdoor.
