The Fontana Sheriff's Station is now partnering with the Ring system and Neighbors App to interact and share information.
Sheriff's detectives and station personnel from throughout San Bernardino County completed their training recently and are able to receive information and interact with residents through the app.
Customers with a Ring camera will be able to share videos with their local Sheriff’s station.
The Neighbors App connects communities with the goal of creating safer and stronger neighborhoods, and one of the benefits is that residents do not need to own a Ring device to use the app.
"While the Ring system and Neighbors App are great tools for interaction and sharing information, they are not monitored 24/7," the Sheriff's Department said in a news release.
"The Neighbors App is not designed to replace traditional crime reporting. If you are a victim of a crime, or you want to report suspicious activity, please call your local San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department - Dispatch Center. For emergencies, call 9-1-1. For all other reports, call our nonemergency lines: Valley residents call (909) 387-8313 and Desert residents call (760) 956-5001."
