Kenai police offer security checks on unattended homes

Kenai Police Department is offering free vacation checks to city residents leaving their homes vacant for the holiday season.

Lt. Ben Langham said the service is offered year-round but is popular during this time of the year.

“We add those homes to a special patrol log and go to those homes and make sure they are checked on,” Langham said.

Any city resident is eligible for the free service. The police department will ask for your name, address and a list of emergency contacts.

Langham said at any given time during the year, the department has five to 10 homes they are checking on.

Residents can call 907-283-7879 if they are interested in having their home checked on this holiday season.
