Peterborough Police

FREE Homeguard Inspection Program

If you plan on vacationing out of town this winter help ensure your home stays safe by using the Peterborough Police free Homeguard Inspection program.

The Homeguard Inspection Program is a community-based crime prevention initiative of their Auxiliary officers and allows community members to take an active role in making their homes less susceptible to criminal activity.

During a Homeguard Inspection a member of the Peterborough Police our Auxiliary Unit will attend your home and conduct a home security audit. They will inspect windows, doors, and the exterior of the home looking for ways your home might be susceptible to a break and enter. A written report is provided to the homeowner detailing potential improvements, for maximum safety.

Residents in Peterborough, the Village of Lakefield or the Township of Cavan Monaghan can request an appointment for an inspection online by completing the form below, or by calling the Peterborough Police Service Victim Services Unit at 705-876-1122 Ext 268.

Officers often recommend Homeguard Inspections to victims of break and enter, or domestic violence, but anyone can request an inspection. Homeguard is meant to help residents improve home security and prevent break-ins and thefts at their home.
