A to Z report: Ring, ring, it’s the police

The Biloxi Police Department has joined the Ring Neighbors social media app, meaning the department has a new way to engage with residents.

The Ring Neighbhood service will allow residents, if they choose, to share images of criminal or suspicious activity with the police department, Biloxi Police Capt. Brian Dykes says in today’s Biloxi A to Z report. Today’s 15-minute video report also has the latest on COVID-19 and vaccinations, and a weekend preview.

The Police Department’s new Ring account also will provide the department to comment on posts. The department, however, will not have access to anyone’s video or Ring cameras, and those downloading the Neighbors app don’t even have to own a Ring camera.

Ring is a smart security device company. It’s best known for its video doorbell, which allows Ring users to see, talk to, and record people who come to their doorsteps. The company sells wifi-enabled products that integrate with its Neighbors app, where users can post videos of suspicious activity and crimes outside their front doors, as well as view posts from other people within a five-mile radius.
