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.
