How to use the Neighbors app
With the Neighbors app, you can easily share and communicate with your community about crime and safety issues impacting your neighborhood. By working together, we can pursue our mission to make neighborhoods safer for our families, friends and neighbors.
The Neighbors app uses your address to create a radius around your home. When posting or commenting on Neighbors, your real identity is not published but the post is made public to other users.
If anyone shares a post on the app about crime or safety within that radius, you’ll get a notification on your phone and tablet. Conversely, if you share a post on the app about a crime or safety issue in your radius, your neighbors will also get a notification on their phones and tablets.
You can then on these posts to provide additional information about local issues, give tips to avoid affected areas and share photos or videos to help neighbors stay safe and informed.
