The Sunbury Police Department has joined the social networking age to alert Sunbury residents and drivers about public safety related issues, missing or lost children, and/or traffic problems as a means to provide enhanced citizen services and supplement its ongoing partnership effort with the community.  The Sunbury Police Department is currently using Facebook to provide some social networking information and will continue to do so.  We are happy to announce that we will begin using Nixle to provide and deliver important and timely emergency and general information to the City’s residents using the latest technology available.
