House Watch Request

The House Watch program is provided as a community service for the residents of Peculiar.  It was developed to provide extra patrol when residents will be away from home for an extended period of time.  Our officers will periodically check the perimeter of your home to ensure everything is safe and secure.  If a situation arises or suspicious activity is observed, we will take necessary and appropriate action.  And attempt to reach you or whomever you designate as your point of contact during your absence.  

In offering this service, neither the City of Peculiar, nor the Peculiar Police Department assumes any liability for any property loss or damage resulting from a criminal offense or civil event occurring at the location during the time period specified.  Submission of the house watch request form will result in an increased patrol effort by the Peculiar Police Department patrol personnel.


  • Make sure your home appears lived in, and not unoccupied:  stop mail service, newspaper delivery, and all other deliveries or ask a trusted friend to collect these items daily.
  • Don't post your plans on social media until after you return home.
  • Leave a (locked) car in the driveway where people can see it, or see if a neighbor wants to park there.
  • Hide empty garbage cans.  Set an automatic timer on several lights and a radio.
  • Have a neighbor keep your property maintained;  shovel snow, rake leaves, mow the lawn, etc.
  • Leave a key with a trusted family member, friend or neighbor.
  • Store valuables in a safety deposit box.
  • Inform a neighbor you trust of your departure and return dates.  Provide phone numbers where you can be reached in case of an emergency.
  •  Double check basements, garages, doors and windows to make sure they are secured.  

After completing the House Watch Form, you may fax it to 816.758.5103 or deliver it to the police department at 224 N. Main Street.
