It’s one of the fastest growing social networks in the nation and it’s one that law enforcement apparently loves.
40,000 people in Hampton, Newport News, York County and Poquoson are on Nextdoor. That number is up 700 percent from 2014. The law enforcement agencies in those areas say a connected community makes a difference in reducing crime.
“It’s important to be connected before the storm happens,” said Nextdoor Senior City Strategist and Professional Neighbor Jospeh Porcelli.
Nextdoor connects people with their neighbors, making sure they live in that area before they can see anything.
