Sheriff Phil Stammitti is excited to be joining the "Neighbors by Ring" App in efforts to reduce crime in our Community.
This app will allow the Lorain County Sheriff’s Office to inform the community of real-time crime and safety events so you can always stay informed. The "Neighbors by Ring" App also allows you, the user, to "see something - share something" directly with the Sheriff’s Office. The user has to provide permission to the Sheriff's Office through the app for the video. At no time will the Sheriff's Office be able to monitor live feeds from the users' device.
You do not need Ring devices to participate; anyone with any camera system can upload content to the "Neighbors" App! The Sheriff's Office is encouraging every one of you to spread the word out to the community about the "Neighbors" App. To download please text "stay safe" to 555888.
Remember if you see something, share something and report it to the Lorain County Sheriff’s Office.
Should you have questions about the app, please contact Lt. Vansant at 440-329-3880
