STAFFORD – The Stafford Township Police Department today announced that it is joining the Neighbors app by Ring (available via iOS/Android at https://download.ring.com/stafford ) to provide the Stafford Township community with real-time, local crime and safety information. The Neighbors network already has millions of users and has been instrumental in catching package thieves, stopping burglaries, and keeping neighborhoods safe. 

Residents can download the free Neighbors app, join their neighborhood, and use the app 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.

“We are excited to bring the concept of Neighborhood Watch into the 21st Century in Stafford with the Neighbors app by Ring.  With the popularity of app-based security on the rise, neighbors are now able to upload and share safety information and potential criminal activity with one another and with law enforcement”, Stafford Police Chief Thomas Dellane stated. “The Neighbors app will allow our Officers and residents to communicate and work together in keeping our neighborhoods safe and solving crime”.  

Jamie Siminoff, Chief Inventor and Founder of Ring, said: “We’re excited to have the Stafford Township Police Department join Neighbors to keep their community up-to-date on local crime and safety information. Over the past few years we have learned that, when neighbors, the Ring team and law enforcement all work together, we can create safer communities. Neighbors is meant to facilitate real-time communication between these groups, while maintaining neighbor privacy first and foremost. By bringing security to every neighbor with the free Neighbors app, the Stafford Township community can stay on top of crime and safety alerts as they happen.”
