Does anyone have a RING doorbell?

Can you tell your experience? THANKS Several on our block are considering getting one.

  • gpblight 22 Yr East Garfield Resident

    My neighbor says the same thing. She likes the Comments.

  • Tomorrow is another day Happy resident of North Park Village

    Hey, gpblight, if you haven't bought the Ring doorbell, and you want to, go to QVC.com. Today, Saturday, they have a special: $84.95 with 5 easy payments of $16.99 (and free shipping too!). There you can watch a video presentation and see reviews.

    I hope you get this in time.

Problems getting 911 response?

This past week a 911 Supervisor filed a SPECIAL ATTENTION for the address that is problematic.

With a SPECIAL ATTENTION CPD will have to do more.

Never talk to the front line operator. Always speak to a Supervisor. Ask what additional things they can do when 911 OEMC calls are not responded to by CPD.

You can foia the special attentions. Then throw them to the IG. Perhaps the Ig will get better results than we residents who do not get 911 responses that are meaningful.
