Police join new app to reduce crime


The Barberton Police Department is joining the Neighbors by Ring app in an effort to reduce theft-related crime.

The free app will allow officers to inform users of real-time crime and safety events as well as allow users to share photos, videos and information directly with the department and with those in the community. To download the app, residents can text “staysafe” to 555888 or search for Neighbor on any app store.
