Port Hueneme, CA — The Port Hueneme Police Department is joining the Neighbors app by Ring (available via iOS/Android here: https://shop.ring.com/pages/neighbors to provide the Port Hueneme 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 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 their neighbors, local law enforcement and the Ring team.
Chief Salinas said, “This is definitely a community crime fighting tool we can use to help reduce crime in our neighborhoods. We want to get our residents involved and this easy to use platform will allow the police and our neighborhoods to get up-to-date information which is critical when trying to apprehend criminals. The City of Port Hueneme continues to be hampered by theft in our city including package theft, mail theft, and theft from vehicles. This new program will help us address these issues by giving us the ability to identify thieves and by getting real time updates and information from our Neighbors.”
Jamie Siminoff, Chief Inventor and Founder of Ring, said: “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.
We’re excited to have the Port Hueneme Police Department join Neighbors and applaud their leadership in utilizing this free and effective tool to engage residents with up-to-date local crime and safety information while maintaining neighbor privacy first and foremost.”
