TBI launches use of Nixle

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is starting a new communication service beginning Sept. 1 that will carry alerts and messages directly to the community.

Nixle, a community information service, will allow TBI to create and publish messages to be delivered to subscribed residents instantly via cell phone with text messages or with e-mail on a handheld device.

Notifications can also be accessed online at Nixle's website at www.nixle.com. Subscribers decide the format to receive messages from TBI.

Messages will include information on AMBER Alerts and Top Ten Most Wanted fugitives and other information.

Residents of Tennessee can begin receiving TBI information via text message, e-mail or the Web by registering at www.nixle.com. Standard text messaging rates do apply.
