Kankakee Police Department issued the following announcement on Sept. 25.
One of the basic tenets of community policing is that small wins over time creates success.
We were able to get a small win using the Ring neighborhood app. Earlier in the month, a citizen had a package stolen from their front porch. Using video from their Ring we were able to track down the juvenile and return the citizen's property back to them.
We believe that using the Ring and other security video systems will help us impact crime in our community even further as we move forward. Investigators are going through videos of other crimes and we expect more cases to be made impacting the quality of life for our citizens.
Thank you to the community for your hard work in keeping Kankakee safe!.
