The Will County Sheriff’s Office is announcing that it is joining the free Neighbors app by Ring to provide unincorporated Will County residents 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 text willcounty to 555888 from their smartphone to download the Neighbors app for free on iOS or Android and use the app to: join their neighborhood, 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.
This is how you get started:
• Download the app:
Text willcounty to 555888 or visit: https://download.ring.com/willcounty
• Opt in to join your neighborhood.
• Customize the geographic area you want to receive notifications to (users must verify where they are located and cannot participate in other neighborhoods).
• Start receiving real-time alerts as they happen.
• View local crime and safety posts via a live feed or interactive map.
• Share text updates, photos and videos taken on any device, including Ring’s home security devices.
• Work with your community to make neighborhoods safer.
That’s it! It’s that easy! Get involved with your community – be a good neighbor! Let’s work together in making Will County a safer place to live.
