San Antonio Police Department Partners with Nextdoor to Help Keep the River City Safe

Today, we were excited to travel to San Antonio to formally announce our partnership with the San Antonio Police Department. Led by Chief Treviño, this partnership will enable the police department to communicate with residents across the River City to help keep their neighborhoods safe.

Members of the San Antonio Police Department participate in a training on Nextdoor.

Keeping San Antonio safe is no easy task, however – with more than 1.4 million residents, San Antonio is the seventh most populous city in the United States and the second most populous city in Texas. Using Nextdoor, the San Antonio Police Department will be able to communicate with residents across the entire city, in selected groups, or with a single neighborhood in order to provide relevant and timely information to residents.

Chief Treviño and our very own Robbie Turner speak about the partnership.

Nextdoor isn’t totally new to San Antonio: over the last two years, residents have started more than 420 Nextdoor websites across the city, representing more than 60% of the neighborhoods in San Antonio. We’re excited that the San Antonio Police Department will now be able to join the conversations already happening amongst San Antonio neighbors about the things that matter most to their communities.

From all of us at Nextdoor – welcome to the neighborhood, SAPD!
