NYPD Will Join Ring Neighbors

By 11/02/2022 3:22 PMNo CommentsBy YidInfo Staff

Today, the NYPD stated that it would participate in Neighbors, a free software created as a component of the Ring system that encourages communication between law enforcement and the general public.

Ring and the NYPD will begin working together across the entire city in the upcoming week.

The NYPD will be able to observe, post, and respond to information about crime and safety that app users publicly post, even though they won’t continuously monitor it.

These posts, with or without supporting images or videos, will show up on a timeline on a map.

Through the “Request for Assistance” component of the app, the NYPD will also be able to proactively post notices to the public and ask for assistance from the public with ongoing police concerns.

“The ability to interact online with New Yorkers – often in real-time – adds to the NYPD’s comprehensive crime-fighting strategies in its relentless efforts to keep our city and everyone in it safe,” said Police Commissioner Keechant L. Sewell.

“True public safety is a shared responsibility, and this tool stands to advance further the collective work of our police and all the people we serve toward reaching that worthy ideal,” Sewell added.
