Police Alert System

Join the Shorewood Police Department on Nixle!

Nixle is a community information service provider built exclusively to provide secure and reliable communications. Its authenticated service connects the Shorewood Police Department to residents in real time, delivering information to residents of specific neighborhoods.

Information is instantly available over cell phones via text message, email, and over the web (similar to Twitter).

Due to the safety concerns and staffing, these messages will not be sent while the crime, search or incident is in progress but as soon after as possible.

  • This service is intended to inform citizens of major incidents or on-going crime trends in and around Shorewood, and to post other important or informational releases from the Shorewood Police.
  • Not all crimes and incidents are included here.
