Earlier this monthwe learned that Amazon was talking to law enforcement agenciesabout potentially giving them access to the video stream from the doorbells both as a way to help make decisions about how to deploy emergency personnel as well as to potentially create “crime news” posts for Amazon’s neighborhood watch app, Neighbors.
This week, Amazonposted a blog post about its work with law enforcementagencies, specifically detailing the 405 different law enforcement agencies that currently work with the company on the Neighbors Portal.
The named law enforcement agencies might be involved as far as viewing and commenting on public posts, or they might submit a request for a video recording taken by someone’s Ring doorbell of an incident.
Along with that post, it also posted a map of all the law enforcement agencies involved. You can see a screenshot of it below, and zoom in and out on aninteractive map here.
In general, it’s a good idea to just know this is happening where you live.
