Several years ago, the Sunnyside Police Department launched a partnership with a new community information service designed to deliver important information to residents using the latest technology. The service, created by Nixle, LLC delivers trustworthy and timely neighborhood-level public safety and community event notifications by web, e-mail, and text message. All school lockdown information will be delivered via this free service.

If you are not already registered with, Sunnyside Police encourage you to register for this service immediately. They will no longer be calling schools, daycare centers, etc. To notify them of lockdown information, messages will be distributed through the Nixle partnership.

Residents can register for Nixle in two ways. You can log on to and register as a ‘community resident’ or you can text your zip code to 888777 to start receiving information.
