'Nextdoor' to open communication among neighbors
A new social media site is up and running for Lafayette residents to share information on community safety.
'Nextdoor' is a free, private, network that allows neighbors to exchange information about their area.
Police Lieutenant Pat Flannelly says establishing this type of communication leads to a more secure environment.
The site has been up for about two weeks.
Flannelly says so far there are roughly 200-households signed up.
The information exchanged is only available to people who live in specific neighborhoods, which is verified through a landline telephone number or credit information.
Outsiders do not have access.
