Madisonville police alerting residents to free text-alert system

Posted: Updated:

Madisonville Police are asking everyone to sign up the department's free Nixle text alert system.

Officials say this is the fastest most accurate way for the department to relay information on road closures, missing persons, storm system warnings, and hazardous accidents.

Police say over 2,000 residents have already signed up.

"We've actually used it with success on an Alzheimer's patient that we were able to locate because of the system," said Lt. Chip White.

You may sign up by texting "MPD PUBLIC" to 888777.
