Public safety agencies across the country use Neighbors Public Safety Service, which is how public safety agencies participate in the Neighbors App, to better engage with and inform the communities they serve. Communities can stay more informed when their public safety agency posts important information about crime and safety events in their neighborhood. Users will know when a public safety agency has posted or commented because we will always display and indicate their official agency name. Ring device owners can also choose to submit video recordings to help with active investigations.
Ring will notify users when a local public safety agency joins by sending an in-app post through the Neighbors App. Users may also see an announcement through local press or on social media. Additionally, users can search the Active Agency Map below to see if their local public safety agency is using the Neighbors App. The map is updated regularly so users can search either by zip code, address or visually by zooming into a region or city.
To learn more about how local public safety agencies are using the Neighbors App, please read our Public Safety FAQ and this blog post.
