House Watch Request

  1. If you are going on vacation or plan to be away from home for an extended period of time, the Edina Police Department's free House Watch Program can give you peace of mind.
    Community Service Officers will conduct periodic exterior checks while you are away, monitoring your property for inappropriate activity or emergencies.
  2. Enlisting the Police Department to keep an eye out for suspicious activity while you are away from home does not guarantee against loss, theft, damage or mischief, but it can be a useful deterrent to anyone who may be considering accessing your home for criminal purposes.

  3. Program Notes

    Please note that enrollment does not create a special duty upon the Police Department to monitor your home. Visual inspections of your home's exterior will be conducted as time and staffing permits. House checks are not conducted on homes that are occupied for any length of time during the homeowner's absence. Enrollment is only open to homeowners who will be away for at least one week.

  4. Please fill out this form if you would like your residence or business to be watched while you're away.
