Commercial Emergency Preparedness:

Business Registry:
The Fenwick Island Police Department maintains a record of emergency contacts for commercial enterprises located within the Corporate limits of Fenwick Island.

We strongly encourage you to complete the Commercial Emergency Preparedness Questionnaire. The Police Department will make periodic checks on your business while it is vacant. Information you provide allows us to contact you or your designated key holder in the event that the property may need attention.

This program is a public service to help safeguard citizens’ property and allow for a rapid response and owner notification in the event of a problem.

House Watch:

About the House Watch Program:
The Fenwick Island Police Department’s House Watch Program is designed to provide peace of mind to our residents while they are away from home for extended periods of time, whether for vacation, illness, work-related travel, or other circumstances. The Police Department will make periodic checks on your residence while it is vacant. Information you provide allows us to contact you or your designated key holder in the event that the residence may need attention.

The House Watch Program provides an overall increase in police presence around your home during your time away. Due to manpower issues and unforeseen circumstances we cannot guarantee the safety of your home or personal property, but the Fenwick Island Police Department will try to schedule extra patrols around your home during your time away.

This program is a public service to help safeguard citizens’ property and allow for a rapid response and owner notification in the event of a problem.
