The popularity of these doorbell and home security cameras are essentially creating a network of cameras watching what is going on in each individual neighborhood, which is turning out to be a blessing for a lot of police stations. A growing number of local police are now partnering with Amazon's Ring product. By promoting the Ring service, the police are getting more security cameras on each doorstep that will in turn help them solve a crime. It should also serve as a deterrent to those looking to commit crime in a neighborhood. Maybe as you attempt to break into an unlocked car, you think twice is any camera capturing my act.
A known trick used by burglars is to ring the doorbell. If no one comes to the door, then presumably, no one is home and the house is clear to rob. However, what happens when there is a Ring or some other similar product at the front now capturing your image as you ring that doorbell. You likely wouldn't cover your face when ringing the doorbell because if someone is home, that would alert suspicion and have the home owner call the police. If you don't cover your face, then we know who broke in.
Alternatively, will some police stations go too far and view the surveillance "just in case"? Would this lead to unnecessary surveillance on citizens? The line distinguishing between personal safety and privacy continues to blur.
Like everything in life, things can be interpreted as good or bad. I think in this case, Ring and similar products are at a minimum going to help slow down crime in neighborhoods.
