In an effort to better
communicate with our community the North Ridgeville Police Department is happy
to announce that we have partnered with Ring, the popular Amazon video-doorbell
company. This will allow our Department
to share information we feel may reduce crime and gives you the opportunity to
share your videos directly with us. You
do not need to have a Ring device to participate, as anyone can upload content
from their camera system to the Neighbors App.
To be clear this does not
give our agency access to your camera or system. It is simply a way for you to share the
videos that your camera system captures.
It could be something that seemed suspicious to you or something that
you feel is pertinent to an investigation we are conducting. We only have access to what you, the
community, provide us. Remember, if you
do decide to share a video of a crime or suspicious activity, please report it
to the Department by calling 440-327-2191.
If this is something that you would like to participate in please download the Neighbors App by texting the phrase “staysafe” to 555888 on your smart phone. Remember you do not need to have a Ring doorbell to upload video, as you can upload video from any camera system to the App. You can refer to these links for assistance in downloading videos: https://support.ring.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001834066-Downloading-Your-Ring-Videos
We hope you will join us in making North Ridgeville a safer community!
