PLEASE TAKE NOTE: The Borough of Highlands is migrating from Swift911 to Nixle in order to better communicate OEM, Police and Borough notifications. To enroll in Nixle, text 07732 to 888777 and you will be sent log in information. Go to www.nixle.com for more information about how to sign up.

One of the many features of Nixle is an automatic push notification to Facebook. This notification only works on PAGES not GROUPS so we have created the following PAGE  https://www.facebook.com/Borough.of.Highlands.NJ/ . The current Borough Facebook GROUP will be taken down at the end of July.
