Rocklin PD Joins ‘Neighbors’ by Ring to Provide Users Real-Time Crime and Safety Information
The Rocklin Police Department is joining the free Neighbors app by Ring to provide the Rocklin 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 text ROCKLINCA to 555888 from their smartphone to download the Neighbors app for free on iOS and Android. After joining their neighborhood, users can share crime and safety-related videos, photos and text-based posts; in addition to receiving real-time safety alerts from their neighbors, local law enforcement and the Ring team.
Jamie Siminoff, Chief Inventor and Founder of Ring, said: “We’re excited to have the Rocklin 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 Rocklin community can stay on top of crime and safety alerts as they happen.”

Ring’s mission is to reduce crime in neighborhoods by creating a “Ring of Security” around homes and communities with its suite of home security products and services. In fact, two Newark, NJ neighborhoods saw an over 50 percent decrease in home break-ins after Ring Video Doorbells and Spotlight Cams were installed on 11% of homes in the communities from April-July 2018, when compared to the same time period in 2017.
