"Nixle is a clear example of our push to utilize technology to communicate with residents and Chicago Police Department members," said Superintendent Jody P. Weis. "This ability to give information so quickly will effectively help citizens stay more safe and aware, while engaging people to think about what they know that will help our officers better resolve crime and community concerns," he added.
