The Neighbors Crime Report

The Neighbors Crime Report is a free weekly report offered by Ring to everyone using the Neighbors feature and Neighbors App. The Crime Report will appear every Sunday in your Neighborhood feed and will contain localized crime incidents reported by law enforcement for your neighborhood. This article contains frequently asked questions concerning the Neighbors' Crime Report.

Why am I receiving the Ring Neighbors Crime Report?

The Ring Neighbors Crime Report is a free service offered to everyone who uses the Neighbors App. The idea behind it is to help our neighbors enhance their security by making them aware of the crimes that have been reported in their area within the previous seven days. Armed with this information, neighbors can work together to help ensure everyone's safety.

What kind of crimes are listed in the Crime Report?

The following crimes will be listed in the Crime Report:

  • Homicide
  • Shootings
  • Assaults 
  • Robbery
  • Theft
  • Vandalism

Will suspicious activity or stranger on property events be included in the Crime Report?

No. The Crime Report is made up of incidents that have been reported to local law enforcement, not events reported by neighbors in the Neighbors App. 

When should I expect the Crime Report and what time period does it cover?

You should expect to receive the Crime Report every Sunday. It will cover the previous week. 

I didn't receive a Crime Report this week. Is something wrong?

No. Crime Reports are only generated when there are new confirmed incidents in a particular neighborhood during a week-long period. If there are no new incidents reported by law enforcement in your area, there won't be a Crime Report generated for that week.
