(Pinedale, Wyo – April 8th, 2021) SCSO announces it has joined Neighbors by Ring.   April 8th, 2021 2:19 pm  

This week the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office has become the first Law Enforcement agency in Wyoming to join Neighbors. This app enables users in our community to share and discuss crime and safety issues specific to your neighborhood (up to 5-mile radius of your home). It also integrates with any RING device you may have to allow users, if they choose, to share critical surveillance video and pictures with our agency including safety concerns and or crimes. Users can also share information with fellow residents regarding: Crime, Safety, Unexpected activity, Lost pets, and neighborly moments. The Neighbors app is free and having a Ring device is not required to use the service.

 

The SCSO will use this new feature to connect with residents in a new way as part of our effort to reach all audiences in our community. We may also request helpful information from residents and their Ring devices (If they chose to share) to assist in protecting our communities.
