For hundreds of Gwinnett neighborhoods, Nextdoor is the best way to stay in the know about what’s going on in your neighborhood—whether it’s finding a last-minute babysitter, learning about an upcoming block party, or hearing about a rash of car break-ins. There are so many ways our neighbors can help us. We just need an easier way to connect with them. Duluth police even use the app to receive non-emergency complaints and to send out alerts.
