Launch of New Residential Check Program

Beginning on June 09, 2017, the Dunwoody Police Department will utilize a new program to perform residential (vacation) checks.

*****  FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  *****

Incident:  Launch of New Residential Check Program
Date:  June 12, 2017
Location:  Dunwoody Police Department

Beginning on June 09, 2017, the Dunwoody Police Department will utilize a new program to perform residential (vacation) checks.  The new program, which is integrated into the current Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system, replaces the Interactive Defense System and creates a more efficient and streamlined process for accepting and performing checks.  Residents will be able to enter basic information for each request and, once accepted, the requests are instantly displayed in the CAD system.  During each shift, Police Officers and Volunteers will perform residential checks as time and call volume permit.

The new program will use one form for three request types:  Residential Checks, Extra Patrol Requests and Traffic Enforcement Requests.

Prior to departing for a vacation or business trip, residents of the City of Dunwoody are encouraged to visit the City’s Police to Citizen Portal at http://p2c.dunwoodyga.gov/p2c/SecurityRegistration_Disclaimer.aspx and complete the form for a Residential (vacation) Check.

Residents of the City of Dunwoody that would like to request extra patrols or report traffic concerns are encouraged to visit the City’s Police to Citizen Portal at http://p2c.dunwoodyga.gov/p2c/SecurityRegistration_Disclaimer.aspx and complete the form for Extra Patrol Requests or Traffic Enforcement Requests.

Residents that have previously submitted a residential check through the Interactive Defense System (IDS), including current and future checks, will not need to submit an additional request as each check has been transferred from IDS to the current system.  Future requests will need to be submitted via the process listed above.

For more information, please contact Community Outreach / Public Information Officer Mark Stevens via telephone at 678-382-6917 or via Email at mark.stevens@dunwoodyga.gov.
