VAN BUREN, AR -- Van Buren Police are aiming to get you urgent information fast - and straight to your phone or email.

The department has partnered with Nixle Information Service to create and publish public safety messages to be delivered to subscribed residents instantly via cell phone text message and/or email. The messages will be sent to folks registered within a ¼ mile radius to get them "trustworthy information relevant only to their neighborhood."

You can sign up at the Van Buren Police Department website or by texting the word VANBURENPD to 888777.
