Newport PD Joins Neighbors App
The Newport Police Department has announced they are now a part of the security app “Neighbors”. That app which is affiliated with Ring Video Doorbells allows users to get real-time crime and safety alerts from your neighbors and public safety agencies. The Newport Police Department says the Neighbors app is not monitored by public safety agencies 24/7, but you can view, post and respond to crime and safety related information posted on the Neighbors App. Newport Police Department says they may also create a ‘Request for Assistance’ post to notify the public and ask for help with an active investigation. The Police Department says it’s a way to work with the public to make a safer community.
