Tampa Police Department has partnered with the creators of the Neighbors app to help Tampa residents use new technology and old-fashioned neighborhood pride to help keep their communities safe.
The Neighbors app enables you to monitor neighborhood activity, share crime and safety related videos and photos, and receive real-time safety alerts from your neighbors and Tampa Police. The app is being called the “new Neighborhood Watch,’’ and is being used in communities across the nation. The app was created by Ring, the makers of security devices, including the Ring Doorbells that have figured prominently in TPD investigations in recent years.
