Conyers Police LIVE on Neighbors by Ring

Post Date:03/06/2020 4:00 AM

The Conyers Police Department is now LIVE on Neighbors by Ring. Citizens may be familiar with the Ring doorbell cameras, but did you know there is an interactive mobile app, “Neighbors,” where videos are shared and citizens can interact?

The beauty of this application is it is FREE to anyone and you do not have to have a Ring device to participate. Check it out at https://shop.ring.com/pages/neighbors

Local police uses Neighbors to share important crime and safety information with residents, and work with their  communities to make neighborhoods safer. Ring is proud to work with local police across the country,  through the Neighbors app, to help open the lines of communication between local police and the  communities they serve. Ring believes when communities and law enforcement work together, safer neighborhoods can become a reality.   

Local police are never given access to users’  cameras or devices through Neighbors or Ring. Further, the Neighbors Portal does not provide local police  with the addresses at which any devices are located  without a user’s express consent. Finally, users are identified in the Neighbors app  posts/comments only as “Neighbor #”. Local police  see the same information on Neighbors as regular  users and do not receive additional information  about the post, the user posting or commenting.  
 
Conyers Police can use Neighbors to ask their community for assistance with an investigation.  When they do so, users retain absolute control to  determine whether they may have potentially  relevant videos, whether or not they elect to share  any videos, or opt out of future requests. Police cannot see how many Ring users received a  request, who declined to share, or which users  opted-out of future requests.
