Brea Police Department Partners with the Neighbors App by Ring

The Brea Police Department has joined the Neighbors App by Ring in an effort to connect with our community to fight crime and identify suspects. The Neighbors App allows neighbors to share photos and videos from their security cameras, regardless of whether or not they use Ring products, by creating a community that informs and looks out for one another. The app allows users to remain anonymous and receive real-time notifications. Uploading videos and photos are voluntary and can assist law enforcement agencies in locating and identifying suspects. It also allows us to send messages to specific neighborhoods in the event we are searching for footage that could assist in investigations. For more information on the Neighbors App, please visit
