Neighbors helps you create a ring of security around your neighborhood by letting you easily share and communicate with your community about crime and safety. With Neighbors, you have up-to-date local crime data at your fingertips. We believe that knowledge and communication foster stronger and safer communities. Together, we can make our neighborhoods better places to live for our families, friends, and neighbors.

Neighbors is a space that allows neighbors to share videos, images, and information about local crime and safety events in order to make their neighborhoods safer. These are the features of Neighbors you can use:
- You can interact with a newsfeed of crime, safety, suspicious, and strange incidents your Neighbors have reported in your area.
- You can interact with a map that reveals crime, safety, suspicious and strange incidents your Neighbors have reported in your area.
- You can view and share videos taken by Ring devices and non-Ring devices that are centered around crime and safety incidents.
- You can view and share images with your neighbors about crime and safety incidents.
- You can view and share text-based posts with your neighbors about crime and safety incidents.
- You can comment on your own or other people's posts.
- You can view local news items related to crime and safety in your area.
- You can flag unhelpful or inappropriate pieces of content and have them removed from the content feed.
Flag it. There are controls within Neighbors that allow you to flag inappropriate content. Once content is flagged as inappropriate, our 24/7 moderation team will review it and if it's judged to be inappropriate it will be removed from the content feed.
To flag content, tap the three-period icon at the top of the post and tap "Flag as inappropriate."
To flag a comment as inappropriate, simply tap the comment, then tap "Flag as inappropriate."

Neighbors partners with third-party, real-time alerting services, including NC4 Risk Center, a crisis reporting agency that evaluates crime & safety incidents worldwide. Our command center of news analysts monitors every alert that comes through our system and determines if they are relevant crime & safety incidents to send out to Neighbors.
