Nextdoor - Virtual Neighborhood Watch!

In an effort to facilitate a virtual Neighborhood Watch program and help foster neighbor-to-neighbor communications, the Rialto Police Department has partnered with Nextdoor, the first private social network for neighborhoods.

What is Nextdoor?:

Nextdoor is free for residents and for the City. Each neighborhood creates its own private Nextdoor website, accessible only to residents of that neighborhood.  Rialto residents can use Nextdoor to get to share information about neighborhood watch issues, local events, and other related activities. We believe a healthier and more engaged city creates stronger communities and Nextdoor can help to do just that.

How Does Nextdoor Work?:

Nextdoor was specifically designed to make neighbors feel comfortable sharing information with one another in order to help build stronger communities.  Neighborhoods establish and self-manage their own Nextdoor website.  Information shared on each Nextdoor site is only visible to members who live in the neighborhood and who have verified their address. We are in the process of mapping the neighborhoods which will range in size from 50 to 250 households.


Information shared on Nextdoor is password protected and cannot be accessed by those outside the neighborhood or found on Google or other search engines.  In addition, Nextdoor never shares personal information with any third parties. Unlike an email listserv or other online group, neighbor posts are organized and archived for future reference.

How Do I Sign Up?:

Those interested in joining their neighborhood’s Nextdoor website can visit and enter their home address. If Nextdoor is already launched in your area you can immediately sign up. If a Nextdoor website has not yet been established for your area we encourage you to become the lead for your neighborhood and get started today.
