The Sylvania Township Police Department and Toledo Police Department announced joining the free Neighbors app by Ring to provide real-time, local crime and safety information. The Neighbors network already has millions of users and has been instrumental in catching package thieves, stopping burglaries, and keeping neighborhoods safe.

This cutting-edge technology gives us another tool to help us in our efforts to better serve the community. When we all work together, the entire community becomes stronger.”
