"Nextdoor is a great digital platform for reaching local residents. It’s been particularly helpful during Covid-19 to help make sure residents have access to critical information and support when they need it most.”

Peter Price

"Nextdoor has provided Crime Stoppers with a large voice. It’s enabled us to reach more people in an efficient manner. This has helped our public engagement and is also an opportunity to provide crime prevention education."
