The Brick City Teams Up with Nextdoor to Fight Crime
Mayor Baraka and Police Director Venable celebrate the announcement with Nextdoor’s Co-Founder, Sarah Leary, and Nextdoor Newark members.
Today was a historic day for Nextdoor on the East Coast and in Brick City, otherwise known as Newark, New Jersey!
Our Co-Founder, Sarah Leary, traveled to Newark to join Mayor Ras J. Baraka, Police Director Eugene Venable, and Police Chief Anthony Campos to announce a partnership between Nextdoor and the City of Newark, which will enable the city and police to send hyperlocal information to all residents who join Nextdoor in the City.
Led by Mayor Baraka and Police Director Venable, this partnership includes the Mayor’s Office, the Police Department, the Department of Child and Family Well-Being, and the Department of Neighborhood and Recreational Services.
All told, this marks the most comprehensive partnership with Nextdoor on the East Coast, and Newark holds the distinction of being the first police department in the Tri-State area to partner with Nextdoor.
We’re proud to partner with innovative trail-blazers like Mayor Baraka and Police Director Venable who are dedicated to finding innovative solutions to make their cities stronger and safer.
