Allen PD Joins Neighbors App by Ring

Allen residents can help stop burglaries and track down package thieves by sharing information on the Neighbors app by Ring.

The app allows community members and law enforcement to share real-time crime and safety information, whether they own a Ring device or not.

Anyone who downloads the app—including owners of Ring doorbells, security cameras and other equipment—can voluntarily post videos, photos or text. The app does not grant law enforcement access to cameras or user data. 

Through partnering with Neighbors by Ring, Allen Police will be able to:

  • Send alerts to Neighbors about local crime and safety incidents in the area in real-time
  • Request information about local crime and safety situations from Neighbors who opt-in to sharing for a request
  • Work together with the local community to build trust and make neighborhoods safer

Allen residents can text allentx to 555888 from their smartphone to download the Neighbors app for free on IOS and Android phones.
