Bedford Police Launch Notification System

Posted: Updated:

The Bedford Police Department is launching an emergency notification system in the next few weeks.

People who sign up will receive updates through email or by text about weather dangers or any other emergencies that may be happening.

The police chief tells us the system called Everbridge costs $8,000. He says they've been trying to get this system for several years.

"They'll be able to sign up and there will also be an app available at no charge that people can get," says James Day, chief of police for the town of Bedford.

People will be able to sign up to receive alerts next month through the police department.
