“We are looking forward to serving our community further by preventing and solving crimes through this excellent crime prevention tool.” – Officer Radd Rotello
Jamie Siminoff, Chief Inventor and Founder of Ring, said: “We’re excited to have the Frisco Police Department join Neighbors to keep their community up-to-date on local crime and safety information. 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. Neighbors is meant to facilitate real-time communication between these groups, while maintaining neighbor privacy first and foremost. By bringing security to every neighbor with the free Neighbors app, the City of Frisco community can stay on top of crime and safety alerts as they happen.”
