FREE Special Property Checks – Register Now for Winter Break!


DPS will actively monitor your residence if you will be away. 

The program is available without charge to residents in the Penn patrol zone, from 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 if they will be away.  Be sure to list your contact information, other occupants, landlord if applicable, 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. Special checks can not be provided for interior areas of apartment complexes.

Remember to close and lock all doors and windows before you leave, and arrange for packages to be delivered elsewhere while you are away. Package theft can be avoided – arrange for a secure pickup whenever you order items. Check this list for safe delivery options:
