COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio’s public safety department is partnering with a popular social network for neighborhoods.

The Ohio Department of Public Safety says it’s the first statewide agency in the Midwest and the third nationally to partner with the Nextdoor app.

The department joins nearly 80 other local Ohio agencies on the platform including the Cincinnati and Columbus police departments.

Nextdoor allows people in individual neighborhoods to share public safety issues, community events and activities, pose questions about local services, and even look for lost pets.

The Public Safety department will share news and updates on Nextdoor and communicate with residents before, during and after an emergency.
