The Amarillo Police Department announced that they will be joining the Neighbors App by Ring.
This will provide the Amarillo community with real-time, local crime and safety information.
The Neighbors App already has millions of users and has been instrumental in catching package thieves, stopping burglaries, and keeping neighborhoods safe.
The app can be used to monitor neighborhood activity; share crime and safety-related videos, photos and text-based posts; and receive real-time safety alerts from their neighbors, local law enforcement and the Ring team.
How It Works
