The online site, Nextdoor, plans to announce a partnership with the city of St. Louis Wednesday that would enable several city departments to begin using the social networking site as an informational and crime-fighting tool.

Nextdoor looks to link neighbor to neighbor as a way to keep people posted as to what is happening in their area.

The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that the police department could use the site to post crime alerts and crime trends that could be targeted citywide or to specific neighborhoods.

The city’s Emergency Management Authority will use it to share information about storm warnings, disaster preparations and heat advisories.  

Michael Powers, legislative director for Aldermanic President Lewis Reed, says it is a unified way for officials to communicate with neighborhoods. Powers says 70 of the 79 neighborhoods in the city have established Nextdoor sites with about 54-hundred residents using the network.

Nextdoor is a San Francisco-based, private social network which launched in October 2011.  Nearly 22-thousand neighborhoods are participating across the United States.  

The site is free and the company says it will remain free to the neighbors who use it. Currently, businesses can’t be a part of the site, just residents.  

Nextdoor also has teamed with police departments in several cities, but St. Louis is unique because the departments taking part extend beyond just police.
