The Neighbors app has been instrumental in catching package thieves,
stopping burglaries, and keeping neighborhoods safe. Anyone can download
the free Neighbors app on iOS
or Android,
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 your neighbors, local
law enforcement and the Ring team.

“We continue to see how technology can improve our residents’ quality of
life. Ring provides us with yet another innovative tool to make our
community safer by allowing you to monitor your home from your
smartphone and integrating this crime-prevention technology into our
police department’s existing resources,” said Miami Mayor Francis
Suarez. “Like the City of Miami, Ring exercises a forward-thinking
approach to safety by offering a modern, effective, and accessible way
to protect your home. This makes the company an ideal partner in our
mission to enhance safety and security in Miami.”

“The Miami Police Department is excited to begin its new partnership
with Ring, which will empower the Magic City’s residents to make a
positive impact on crime trends in their community,” said Miami Police
Chief Jorge Colina. “By leveraging the power of this emerging
technology, we hope that our collaboration will yield improved community
cooperation in our cases and make new evidence available to keep Miami
safe.”

“We’re excited to have the city of Miami join Neighbors to keep their
community up-to-date on local crime and safety information,” Jamie
Siminoff, Chief Inventor and Founder of Ring. “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
maintaining neighbor privacy first and foremost. By bringing security to
every neighbor with the free Neighbors app, Miami can stay on top of
crime and safety alerts as they happen.”
