[ARCHIVED] 04-9-2020 The Danville Police Department has joined the Neighbors App by Ring


The Danville Police Department has joined the Neighbors App by Ring to provide Danville residents with neighborhood crime and safety information. The Neighbors network is becoming well established in Danville and it is an instrumental tool to help keep our community safe. This platform complements the department’s overall crime reduction and community engagement strategy.

Some quick facts from Neighbors:

Neighbors is a free app designed to help communities connect and stay informed about what’s going on around them – whether they own a Ring device or not. Here is how it works:

  • Download the free Neighbors App from the Apple AppStore or Google Play Store.
  • Open the Neighbors App and tap “Join Neighbors.”
  • Enter your address and tap “Done” then tap “Confirm” to continue.
  • Enter your name, email address, password then tap “Sign up.”

By joining Neighbors you can stay informed about what is going on in your community, post and share important crime and safety information, view and comment on videos and engage with your police department.

Your privacy is important therefore you choose what content to share and control how you engage with other users. Neighbors was designed to keep you in control of your private information.

Join us today - smartphone users in the United States can join by downloading Neighbors for iOS, Neighbors for Android and Neighbors for FireOS. Users do not have to own a Ring device to help make their neighborhoods safer.
