Over the last month, we have produced police departments, Amazon security companies and app control home security cameras throughout the United States. More than 200 police stations have partnered with the company and can now request footage through an interactive map of the Leg Enforcement Neighborhood Portal.

Police do not need to be issued a warrant to request ring owner video footage, which is criticized by digital rights groups claiming that partnerships lead to an unregulated surveillance network. There is also concern that the partnership is accidentally encouraging the police department to promote the sale of the Ring camera and to download the Neighbors app ( Motherboard reports are "de facto advertising ring ads") in the community. You will rely more on the camera for surveillance data. There was a report on the city council that subsidizes the cost of the ring security camera, and a report from the police station dispatching police from the neighborhood surveillance office free of charge.

In response to this report, the representative of Ring Motherboard "Ling provides best practice for all law enforcement agencies to publish and participate in apps using their neighbor's app training and portal tools … the company and its products and services are accurately represented by asking for press releases and messages before distribution.
