What is Nextdoor?

As stated on their website –

Nextdoor is the neighborhood hub for trusted connections and the exchange of helpful information, goods, and services. We believe that by bringing neighbors together, we can cultivate a kinder world where everyone has a neighborhood they can rely on.

Building connections in the real world is a universal human need. That truth, and the reality that neighborhoods are one of the most important and useful communities in our lives, have been a guiding principle for Nextdoor since the beginning. Neighbors in the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Australia, Denmark, Sweden, and Canada are using Nextdoor to:

  • Spread the word about a lost dog
  • Recommend and discover favorite local businesses
  • Find a new home for an outgrown bicycle
  • Receive important safety information from local agencies
  • Meet neighbors over a cup of coffee or organize a walking group

Nextdoor is a privately-held company based in San Francisco with backing from prominent investors including Benchmark, Shasta Ventures, Greylock Partners, Kleiner Perkins, Riverwood Capital, Bond, Axel Springer, Comcast Ventures and others.

Nextdoor is free, and it’s easy to sign up.

We want to announce that you may now choose to forward important Crime & Safety messages with Mechanicsburg Police Department via Nextdoor. We want to be very clear that this is NOT a tool to report emergencies or file an official crime report. It’s very important that you call 9-1-1 in the case of an emergency. As always, we cannot view any content that you do not choose to directly forward to Mechanicsburg Police Department. We cannot see the posts and replies that are made in your neighborhood.
