Free Homeguard Inspection Program:
The Peterborough Police Service reminds citizens about its free Homeguard Inspection Program.
The Homeguard Inspection Program is a community-based crime prevention initiative of our Auxiliary officers. This program allows community members to take an active role in making their homes less susceptible to criminal activity.
- A Homeguard Inspection is free.
- Residents can request an appointment for an inspection by filling out an online form or by calling the Peterborough Police Service Victim Services Unit at 705-876-1122 Ext 268.
An appointment will be set for the Inspection to be conducted.
- Members of the Auxiliary Unit will attend your home and conduct a home security audit.
- They inspect windows, doors, and the exterior of the home.
- A written report is provided to the home owner detailing potential improvements, for maximum safety.
- 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.

In 2012 the Homeguard Inspection Program won the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police “Victims Assistance Award.”
