Residents can text ‘NHNC’ to 555888 from their smartphone to download the Neighbors app for free on iOS and Android and use the app to; join their neighborhood, share crime and safety-related videos, photos and text-based posts; and receive real-time safety alerts from their neighbors, local law enforcement and the Ring team.

“We are excited about our partnership with Ring,” said Police Chief Phil Webster. “The Neighbors app enables our department to be even more proactive in deterring and detecting crime. Our residents play a crucial role in this new partnership, adding more meaning to the concept of community-oriented policing. For example, we’ll post crime alerts and information and then request videos from those living or working in the impacted area. A video camera from Ring is not needed to participate. Residents just download the Neighbors app and, if they capture an incident or suspicious activity, they post it to the app and we will work together to keep this great community of ours safe.”

How It Works

  • Text ‘NHNC’ to 555888 or go to: https://shop.ring.com/pages/neighborsapp from your smartphone to download the app for free on iOS and Android.

  • Opt-in to join your neighborhood.

  • Customize the geographic area you want to receive notifications for (users must verify where they are located and cannot participate in other neighborhoods).

  • Receive real-time alerts from your neighbors, local law enforcement and the Ring team that inform of crime and safety alerts as they happen.

  • View local crime and safety posts via a live feed or interactive map.

  • Share text updates, photos and videos taken on any device, including Ring’s home security devices.

  • Work with your community to make neighborhoods safer.
