The Naperville Police Department joined the Neighbors app by Ring in 2019 to provide another avenue for the Naperville community to engage in crime prevention efforts. Through this free app, residents can:
- monitor neighborhood activity;
- share crime and safety-related videos, photos and text-based posts; and
- receive safety alerts from their neighbors, our department and the Ring team.
Neighbors by Ring is free, anonymous and available to anyone, even those who do not own a Ring device.
How It Works:
- Download the Neighbors app on iOS and Android on Ring's Neighbor App webpage or by texting ‘napervillepd’ to 555888 from your smartphone.
- 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.
- Work with your community to make neighborhoods safer.
