With the recent increase in vehicle break-ins the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind community members of a free app to help keep our neighborhoods safe.

Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol would like to make the community aware that the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office has joined the Neighbors by RING App in an effort to reduce crime in Oneida County. This free App will allow the Oneida 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 and then share it directly with the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office and your neighbors. You do not need RING devices to participate - anyone with any camera system can upload videos and information to the Neighbors App! The Neighbors App by Ring allows you to stay informed by getting real-time crime and safety information about your neighborhood from an official source. It allows you to get connected by engaging with local public safety agencies about important incidents in your area. Finally, it allows the neighborhood and law enforcement to work together by sharing relevant information to support safer communities. The Sheriff’s Office encourages each and every one of you to spread the word out to the community about the Neighbors App. To download the free App, you can go to https://store.ring.com/neighbors or you can text “ jointoday ” to 555888 (local texting charge may apply). Remember, if you see something, share something and say something by reporting it to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office at 315-736-0141.
