Sheboygan is one of the most recent local communities to partner with an app that connects neighborhoods.
It's called Nexdoor, and it can be a useful tool for police and fire departments to alert neighbors about crimes, emergencies and special events.
There are at least 27 Sheboygan communities using the app and more than 220 neighborhoods in the greater Milwaukee area.
Jess Jones is a Milwaukee Mom who uses the app on a regular basis. She came on Wisconsin Tonight to show us how it works and how it benefits her daily life.
