Neighbor’s app aims to reduce crime in neighborhoods by connecting people, security cameras and law enforcement

Rolling Meadows Police Department announced Wednesday, March 20, 2019, that the police department has joined the “Neighbors app by Ring” which is available via iOS/Android to provide the Rolling Meadows community with real-time, local crime and safety information. The Neighbors network already has millions of users and has been instrumental in catching package thieves, stopping burglaries, recording suspicious persons, and keeping neighborhoods safe.

Rolling Meadows residents can download the free Neighbors app, join their neighborhood, and use the app to monitor neighborhood activity, 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.

Rolling Meadows Chief of Police John Nowacki said, “The Neighbors app makes it easier than ever for residents to keep one another informed of local crime and safety situations using photos, videos and text-updates shared directly from their smartphones,” Chief Nowacki also said. “Now that local law enforcement can join in, the conversation is more likely to benefit all of us by helping to solve potential crimes in the area, and I think it may be a way to deter criminal activity from happening as well.”

Jamie Siminoff, the Chief Inventor and Founder of Ring, said: “We’re excited to have the Rolling Meadows Police Department join Neighbors to keep their community up-to-date on local crime and safety information. Over the past few years we have learned that, when neighbors, the Ring team, and law enforcement all work together, we can create safer communities. Neighbors is meant to facilitate real-time communication between these groups, while first and foremost maintaining neighbor privacy. By bringing security to every neighbor with the free Neighbors app, the Rolling Meadows community can stay on top of crime and safety alerts as they happen.”

Chief Nowacki learned about the Neighbor’s app by Ring when he spoke to one of his supervisors and thought that this would be a great tool to assist the police department in their crime fighting efforts, “Another great feature about this program is that anyone can use this app even if they don’t have a Ring or other home security device,” said Chief Nowacki. “I also want to stress that we as a police department cannot see into the residents cameras, it is only the residents who opt-in and chose to share the videos with us. This gives our residents complete control on what information they decide to share with us.”

The Rolling Meadows Police Department will also be able to write their own posts and help spread information about recent crimes in the area, or real time crime information. The Neighbors app by Ring is completely free to anyone and Rolling Meadows residents do not need to have a camera in order to participate in this program.

The Rolling Meadows Police Department is among agencies in Illinois to partner with Ring for this crime fighting tool.

Like other social media sharing platforms, the Neighbors app is not meant to replace 911. If Rolling Meadows residents see a crime or suspicious activity occurring they are asked to immediately dial 911.

The Neighbors app for Rolling Meadows residents to download is completely free and is available in the Apple Store or Google play at: https://download.ring.com/rollingmeadows or by texting rmpd to 555888 from your smartphone.
