Special Property Checks During Spring Break!
Under the special checks program, DPS officers check the exterior of registered properties for signs of criminal activity or security breaches at peak travel times during Thanksgiving, Fall, Spring, and Winter Breaks.
SPRING BREAK DATES: Friday March 6th at 5pm to Sunday March 15th at 3pm – 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 below. Be sure to list your contact information, other occupants, landlord if applicable, vacancy dates, scheduled repairs, and someone other than a landlord with access or a key to the property.
Penn Police will periodically check the exterior of registered properties, for signs of criminal activity or security breaches during the break. Special checks can not be provided for interior areas of apartment complexes.
