About the House Watch Program
The Ellinwood Police Department's House Watch Program is designed to provide peace of mind to our residents while they are away from home for extended periods of time, whether for vacation, illness, work-related travel, or other circumstances. The Police Department will make periodic checks on your residence while it is vacant. Information you provide allows us to contact you or your designated key holder in the event that the residence may need attention.
The House Watch Program provides an overall increase in police presence around your home during your time away. Due to manpower issues and unforeseen circumstances we cannot guarantee the safety of your home or personal property, but the City of Ellinwood Police Department will try to schedule extra patrols around your home during your time away.
This program is a public service to help safeguard citizens' property and allow for a rapid response and owner notification in the event of a problem.
