The objective of the program is the establishment of e-mail contact with official representatives of Cobb's homeowners associations (HOAs) and business leaders on matters of safety and security.
The police will notify businesses and HOAs about crime updates, community rumors, tips on crime prevention and BOLO (Be On the Look Out) information.
Visit the PENS Web site for more information.

Notifications from Nixle include:
- Armed or dangerous persons in their area
- Missing person alerts
- Fatality or severe injury accidents resulting in significant traffic delays
- Other critical incidents that require real-time notification
