About Neighborhood eWatch
Education and awareness are cornerstones of our crime prevention philosophy. Neighborhood eWatch is one more way the Mesquite Police Department can interact with residents to provide them with important information about crime and crime prevention issues. The information is delivered directly to their computers or smartphones via the city’s Citizen Notification Service (CNS).
Residents may also want to sign up for alerts from CrimeWeb, which features the ability to receive crime alerts from around the nation.
About the City's CNS Mesquite’s Citizen Notification Service (CNS) works much the same as typical social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook. However, instead of keeping up with friends or your favorite rock band, you can sign up to receive important information from the Mesquite Police Department. The service is free. Notifications can either be sent by email to your computer or as a text message to your cell phone.
