Ottawa residents can sign up for neighborhood watch app

People who live in Ottawa can now download the free Neighbors app on their smart phones.

The free app takes the idea of a neighborhood watch digital where people can report crime and receive alerts.

Ottawa Chief of Police Brent Roalson says it’s a way to alert authorities of suspicious activity.

The app is made by the company Ring which makes security cameras controlled through a phone app.

People who use Ring products can link them to the Neighbors app, so other people can see through their cameras.
