For the safety and convenience of our residents and businesses, the
Kenilworth Police Department offers several programs that you, as a resident or business,
may take advantage of.
Homes vacant for longer than a 24-hour period may be put on
this watch. This special watch is mostly used by residents going on vacation
or for someone moving in or out, but can be done under other circumstances
also. Officers will periodically walk around the home or business checking for
open doors, windows or any problems.
Homes vacant for less than 24 hours or homes that are occupied and in need of a
special awareness may be put on this type of watch. This watch is often used when
a family has a wedding or funeral, suspicious phone calls, domestic troubles and
many other extraordinary circumstances. Officers on patrol will keep an extra watch
on the home.
House Key File:
The Kenilworth Police Department maintains a spare key file.
Any resident or business owner may keep their key on file with us. The key can
only be released to your immediate family. We are very careful to insure that only
those people who have proper identification can sign out the key. A resident may
also pre-approve the release to certain individuals.
Home Security Inspection:
This service provides for an experienced officer to meet
with individual residents in their home and review the homes security conditions.
going through the home together, the resident and officer may discuss sensitive
conditions and why those conditions may jeopardize the security of the home. Although
we do not make specific brand recommendations, the officer will discus different types
of alarms, locks, windows and lighting systems which could be utilized.
