All town residents, property owners, business owners, employees, and visitors are encouraged to download the new app. This WV Public Safety app will replace NIXLE as our community messaging platform.
Developed by tip411, the Waterville Valley PD puts a powerful new crime-fighting tool into the hands of community members of all ages. The Waterville Valley PD app is available for download for free via the Google Play Store, iTunes App Store, or by signing up directly here!
