The Colleyville Police Department has joined the Neighbors app by Ring to provide the residents of Colleyville 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.

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 your neighbors, local law enforcement, and the Ring team.

“We are excited to establish this partnership with Ring and the Neighbors App as we continually look for new ways to communicate directly with our residents and business owners on important issues of crime and safety,” said Chief of Police Michael C. Miller.  “This partnership provides us with another real-time tool to improve the flow of information between the Police Department and our community and it will ultimately improve the efficiency of our investigations.”
