Gwinnett police partner with Ring for crime prevention effort

Gwinnett Commissioners recently approved an agreement between the Gwinnett County Police Department and Ring, LLC to accept 80 Ring Video Doorbells. The donation, valued at $15,920, will allow police access to the Ring Neighborhoods platform, a digital neighborhood watch program that both law enforcement and the public can access by downloading the Ring mobile app.

The mobile app allows “Ring Neighbors” to share and comment on real time crime and safety events. Gwinnett Police will be able to access the shared information to assist in crime investigations and be able to post information about critical incidents to keep participants informed.

The app is free to the public. Ring will also provide free training and support to Gwinnett police.
