The Marshalltown Police Department are pushing for the community to utilize a program that will alert users of emergency situations. The MPD have been using the NIXLE Community Information Service since 2012, according to Police Chief Mike Tupper.
By signing up, you can receive emergency notifications via text or e-mail. And it's simple to show up. You can go to the NIXLE
website or the Marshalltown Police Department website
