Oceanside Police Department Joins ‘Neighbors’ by Ring, Providing Users with Real-Time, Local Crime and Safety Information

Oceanside CA— The City of Oceanside Police Department is joining the Neighbors app, which aims to provide the Oceanside community with real-time local crime and safety information. The Neighbors network has millions of users. It has been instrumental in identifying package thieves, stopping burglaries, and increasing neighborhood safety.
