Nextdoor is the private social network for you, your neighbors and your community. It’s the easiest way for you and your neighbors to talk online and make all of your lives better in the real world. And it’s free.
Approximately 60 of our Haw Creek neighbors are already using Nextdoor to build a happier, safer place to call home.
On Monday, September 14, Asheville Police Department began utilizing Nextdoor to share information on crime, crime prevention, safety and emergency notifications. Our Community Resource Officers (CROs) will be the primary source of information on Nextdoor. CROs are officers who work as a liaison between the police department and the community. They assist with public education, crime prevention and neighborhood specific issues. We would like to remind everyone that police staff can only see our own posts and replies to our posts. We will NOT be able to access or view any information that you and your neighbors have shared on Nextdoor. Nextdoor is not the appropriate way to request emergency services, police services, report criminal or suspicious activity, or file a report. If you require emergency services, or wish to report suspicious activity, please call 9-1-1. For all non-emergency inquiries please contact the Asheville Police Department (828) 252-1110. We would like to thank you for allowing the Asheville Police Department to be a part of your Nextdoor experience. We look forward to connecting with you to build stronger and safer neighborhoods throughout Asheville!
