Press Release: Milpitas Police Department Joins the Ring Neighborhood

Milpitas Police Department Joins the Ring Neighborhood

DATE: October 10, 2019
LOCATION: City of Milpitas

The Milpitas Police Department has partnered with Ring by joining the Ring Neighborhood. The partnership with Ring, in addition to our partnerships with Facebook, Nextdoor, Nixle, and Twitter, provides the Milpitas Police Department with an additional online platform to communicate with residents in Milpitas. Engagement with our community is vital in the effort to strengthen the relationship between the police department and residents, which in turn will make Milpitas a safer community to live and raise families.

The Neighbors app allows residents to share and comment on real time crime and safety events in their neighborhood. As part of the Ring Neighborhood, the Milpitas Police Department can now view, post, and respond to crime and safety related information posted by Milpitas residents using the Neighbors app. Residents do not need to own a Ring device to be part of the Ring Neighborhood. The Neighbors app is available for free on iOS, Android, and FireOS devices.

The Milpitas Police Department can also submit video requests to residents to request help with active investigations in their neighborhoods and within the city. Additionally, the Milpitas Police Department may post information relating to critical incidents and other incidents to keep residents informed.

As a reminder, the Milpitas Police Department’s social media platforms (Facebook, Nextdoor, Nixle, Neighbors, and Twitter) are NOT monitored 24/7. To report an emergency or in-progress crime, please call 9-1-1 or for non-emergency matters, please call 408-586-2400.
