The Colleyville Police Department has joined the Neighbors app to provide users with real-time crime and safety updates. The Neighbors app is a product from home security app Ring.
“The Neighbors network already has millions of users and has been instrumental in catching package thieves, stopping burglaries, and keeping neighborhoods safe,” the police department said in a news release.
Colleyville residents can sign up for the app and use it to monitor neighborhood activity and share crime and safety-related videos and photos. The app also allows users to receive real-time safety alerts from neighbors, law enforcement and the Ring team.
To sign up:
- Text “colleyvilletx” to 555-888 or click here from a smartphone to download the app for free on iOS and Android.
- Opt-in to join your neighborhood.
- Customize the area you want to receive notifications for; users must verify where they are located and cannot participate in other neighborhoods.
Once these steps have been completed, app users can receive real-time alerts regarding crime and safety. A live feed or interactive map shows local crime, and safety posts and photos, text updates and videos can be shared on any device, including Ring’s home security devices.
