The City of Bowling Green has entered into a partnership with Wood County for a free community notification system – CodeRED. This system will eventually take the place of the Nixle alert system currently being used.
CodeRED provides the City with the ability to notify residents in the event of emergency situations or critical information such as water boil advisories, snow emergencies, or large scale electrical outages. In order to receive these notifications, residents need to sign up for this free service. Please refer to the following link on the Division’s website – CodeRED.
CodeRED information can also be found on the City of Bowling Green’s website at CodeRED Community Alerts.
Residents are also encouraged to download the free mobile app as well. Personal information will be controlled by CodeRED and will not be released unless compelled to do so by a court of sufficient jurisdiction.
Through this system, residents will receive the type of notification of their choice – voice, text, and/or email. This includes a notification for the visually impaired.
The Mission of the Bowling Green Police Division is to improve the quality of life in the city’s neighborhoods, to involve the community in decisions which directly affect them and to provide the necessary services identified by the community as important.
