Kennewick Police Check On Homes On a Daily Basis

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Kennewick Police could be checking up on your home, looking for things like lighting, making sure your house number is easy to spot, and that your doors and windows are secure.  

After checking they send a postcard with what they found to the homeowner.

Kennewick Corporal Chris Walters said it is part of a crime prevention program. 

Officers will check off various things they find at a particular house, both positives and negatives, and then write the persons address on the card and sent to them in the mail.

Walters said it is a good way to keep the lines of communication open between residents and officers. 

He said, "The community is one of the best resources we have for fighting crime and many times they are the eyes and ears of the community."

Kennewick Police have been sending these out for years.

If you receive one in the mail you are not required to change anything about your property.

Police said it is another way to keep the community safer.
