The NIXLE system, which went online in Mariposa County on Monday, April 28, allows law enforcement agencies to send messages to subscribers by cell phone, landline telephone, email and the Web in real-time.

Users can choose which way alerts are received, whether it is by email, text message, or over the Web.
 
To register for the NIXLE service, visit www.mariposacounty.org/sheriff and follow the links to register, or text your zip code to 888-777 on any cell carrier.
