Register for Special Checks for the Thanksgiving Break!
Under the special checks program, DPS officers check the exterior of registered properties for signs of safety or security breaches at peak travel times such as during Thanksgiving, Spring and Winter Breaks. Register here!
The program is available without charge to residents in the Penn patrol zone, bounded by 30th Street west to 43rd Street and from Baltimore Avenue north to Market Street.
Students, faculty and staff who live in the patrol zone are encouraged to register their residence here. Penn Police will periodically check the exterior of registered properties, for signs of safety or security breaches while you are away. Special checks can not be provided for interior areas of apartment complexes.
Close and lock all doors and windows before you leave, and, arrange for packages to be delivered to a secure location while you are away. There are several options for safe package delivery:
