Cincinnati hopes to strengthen its neighborhoods by partnering with an online social- networking website.

Mayor Mark Mallory recently announced the partnership with San Francisco-based Nextdoor. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the co-founder of the free, private website says it helps residents of more than 16,000 neighborhoods nationwide talk about neighborhood issues. Residents have access only to their neighborhood’s page and can post about local events, safety and other issues.

Police and some departments under the city manager will be able to post emergency notifications and other information on individual Nextdoor sites within the city.

At least 40 of the 70 websites that Nextdoor considers part of Cincinnati have signed up.

Interim police Chief Paul Humphries says the partnership will allow police to direct crime information to the affected community.
