Amarillo, Texas - The Amarillo Police Department has a new tool to help you stay on top of community situations like missing children or school lockdowns.
Nixle is a subscription service that provides information to the community through emails and text messages.
Police can send alerts to the entire area or just certain neighborhoods.
There are four categories of information they will send: alerts and advisories, which are time sensitive, and community, and traffic.
