Plenty of people have Ring or other security cameras installed at their home. Now, fire and police departments in Kentucky and Indiana are using that to their advantage. Ring's Neighbors app is something anybody can use, whether they have a Ring camera or not. It's a way for people to look out for each other and a way for police and fire departments to connect directly with the public. Anytime an agency joins the app or requests assistance, a notification is sent to users in their jurisdiction. Louisville Metro Fire's Arson Bureau joined the Neighbors app two weeks ago, and Arson Chief Maj. Kevin Fletcher said they have already used it to ask for help with an investigation.
