Did you know that the Keller Police Department (KPD) can provide: (1) a free home security evaluation, and (2) a vacation watch service on your home while you are away?
- FREE HOME SECURITY EVALUATION is available through the Keller Police Department for our Westlake residents. Any resident can arrange to have a trained crime prevention officer come to their home and suggest methods to improve security. If you are interested in having your home evaluated, please call James Intia, KPD Community Relations Officer/Bike Officer/MHO, at 817-743-4533 or email him at email@example.com.
- FREE VACATION HOUSE WATCH SERVICE is also provided free of charge for Westlake residents while they are away on vacation at least three (3) days with a maximum travel time of 21 days.
Residents may obtain a Vacation Watch Form by accessing the link below or by calling (817) 743- 4500, Monday through Friday, 8:00 am-5 pm. Once the form is completed, please return via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or to email@example.com or via fax to KPD at (817)743-4591. For your convenience, please click here to download the KPD vacation watch form.
Upon completion of the form, bring a copy to the Keller Police Department at 330 Rufe Snow Drive or send via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. You may also fax to KPD at (817)743-4591. There, a Records Clerk will assign you a personal house check number. This number is very important to this service, as it allows the police officer to check your residence by radio, without giving out your actual address. It is important that you protect this house check number from unwanted disclosure.
When you return, please call the police department at 817-743-4522 with your personal house check number to cancel the service.
Please note that a house check request should not be submitted if someone will be allowed to stay at the residence during your leave. This creates a safety issue for officers as well as for the person staying at the residence. If you plan to be away longer than 21 days, you may wish to speak with the sergeant on duty.
As you plan for your trip away, police encourage our residents to review this checklist and follow the suggestions to help keep your home safe and secure during your time away.
Keller Police Department puts safety before revenue as they start a new social media program that lets commuters in Keller and Westlake know the weekday location of traffic enforcement officers.
Via status updates and tweets, followers of Keller Police Department accounts on Facebook and Twitter will have access to police activities as day-shift officers are directed to particular enforcement locations.
The new program is the latest in Keller Police efforts to partner with the community on public safety initiatives. Officers hope the new program, reminding citizens regularly to drive safely, will encourage drivers to slow down and obey traffic laws.
