Cape Coral Police Department Joins ‘Neighbors’ to Provide Users with Real-Time, Local Crime and Safety Information; Neighbors aims to reduce crime in neighborhoods by connecting people, security cameras, and law enforcement.
(May 16, 2018)- The Cape Coral Police Department is happy to announce that is joining the Neighbors app (iOS/Android) to provide the citizens of Cape Coral with 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.
Download the free Neighbors app on iOS or Android, join your 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 your neighbors, local law enforcement, and the Ring team.
“Neighbors is the newest tool that we want to provide citizens to connect with the Cape Coral Police Department and each other. Neighbors allows the Cape Coral Police Department to share real-time, local safety information with our citizens. More importantly, it allows residents to share information directly with us, and each other, building a stronger, safer Cape Coral, one neighborhood at a time,” said Lieutenant Dana Coston, Cape Coral Police Department Public Affairs Officer.
Jamie Siminoff, Chief Inventor and Founder of Ring, said: “We’re excited to have the Cape Coral 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 Cape Coral community can stay on top of crime and safety alerts as they happen.”
