Join Your Westfield Police Department on!

Nextdoor ( is a free and private social network for neighborhoods, and now the Westfield Police Department has adopted the platform to communicate directly with residents. This new partnership will improve citywide and neighbor-to-neighbor communications and help all of us build safer communities across the city.

On Nextdoor, neighbors can get to know one another and exchange local advice and recommendations. Westfield residents will also be able to work with the Police Department to improve safety and strengthen virtual neighborhood watch efforts.

Tens of thousands of neighbors across the country are already using Nextdoor to:

  • Find trustworthy local resources, such as babysitters, plumbers, and dentists
  • Communicate with neighbors and police about suspicious activity and safety concerns
  • Organize neighborhood events, such as garage sales and block parties
  • Get assistance in finding lost pets and missing packages
  • Sell or give away items, like an old kitchen table or bike

Nextdoor was specifically designed to make neighbors feel comfortable sharing information with one another. All members must verify that they live within the neighborhood. Information shared on Nextdoor is password-protected and cannot be accessed by those outside the neighborhood or found on search engines.

Please join your neighbors and the Westfield Police Department in building a stronger, safer Westfield today at
