In  October of 2011 the Middlesex Police Department began to utilize a new communications service. This communications service known as “Nixle” allows the Police Department to send important, valuable community information directly to residents using the latest technology.  Messages are delivered by email, SMS/text message (cell phone), and over the world wide web. 

Notifications include crime related alerts, traffic advisories and other relevant safety and community event information. 

Information can be received online and via e-mail. Residents receive messages by cell phone as part of their text-messaging plan (otherwise standard text message rates apply). Text “MIDDLESEXPD” to 888777 to begin receiving SMS/text only messages.

The system is simple to use and provides an easy sign-up process. Register now and learn more at

Nixle’s Community Information Service is built exclusively to provide secure and reliable communications. Its authenticated service connects agencies to citizens in real-time, delivering information to residents. 

Citizen questions about the service and its capabilities can be answered through the Frequently Asked Questions found at   Should you need additional assistance, Nixle provides free citizen support via e-mail at
