Schedule a Residential Security Assessment

The Shawnee Police Department is pleased to offer our citizens a free Residential Security Assessment to help keep your home as safe and prepared as possible from unwanted intruders.

The assessment consists of an on-site examination of your property and the surrounding area in order to help citizens:

  • Identify security deficiencies and/or risks
  • Consider additional protection needs
  • Optimize their home’s ability to discourage and/or slow down an unlawful entry

The assessment focuses on how someone may try to illegally enter a person’s home and what steps can be taken to stop or slow down a criminal. While this assessment is intended to help make it more difficult, time consuming and uncomfortable for an intruder to gain entry, this service should not be construed as making any home “burglar proof." Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a home being burglar or theft proof.

The primary intent of this assessment is to prepare homes that will deter unlawful intrusion. A secondary goal is to impede progress by creating difficulty and exposing an intruder to detection and hopefully being apprehended prior to obtaining access to a property.

Some of the areas covered during the assessment include interior and exterior lighting, landscaping, doors, windows and window coverings, alarm systems, garage burglaries, and vacation checklists. All adult family members are encouraged to attend.

For more information or to schedule a security assessment, please call (913) 742-6859 or email Officer Roman Madrigal with the Shawnee Police Department.
