Wisconsin Rapids Police Department launches new program designed to keep you safe
Text messages and e-mails can be a lot of fun, but coming from the right people, they can also be used to keep you safe.
That's exactly what the Wisconsin Rapids Police Department is using Nixle for.
The community information service allows them to send alerts of missing people, dangerous situations or any other condition via e-mail or text message.
The police department says this will increase public safety, as they can communicate with people quicker than ever before.
