The LEHPD Police K-9 Unit provides K-9 demonstrations and education to community groups, depending on date, time and availability of the K-9 Team.

The K-9 demos are designed to portray the skill involved and the work performed by the K-9 team on a daily basis, plus it gives both children and adults an opportunity to gain knowledge and ask questions about the K-9 Unit.

We require that you provide us with all the details, including advance notice, so appropriate dates can be scheduled. Emergencies arise, and the K-9 team may have to cancel any engagement to assist their community or other communities in their work. If this occurs, we apologize and another date may be arranged.

If you are going on vacation or plan to be away from home for an extended period of time, the police department’s free House Watch Program can give you peace of mind. Officers will conduct periodic exterior checks while you are away, monitoring your property for inappropriate activity or emergencies.

Enlisting the police department to keep an eye out for suspicious activity while you are away from home does not guarantee against loss, theft, damage or mischief but it can be a useful deterrent to anyone who may be considering accessing your home for criminal purposes.
Program Notes

Please note that enrollment does not create a special duty upon the police department to monitor your home. Visual inspections of your home’s exterior will be conducted as time and manpower permits.

House checks are not conducted on homes that are occupied for any length of time during the homeowner’s absence.
Enrollment is only open to homeowners who will be away for at least three days.

How to Enroll

To sign up for the House Watch Program, you must submit a request.

For your convenience, we have made the House Watch Program Request Form available online.

Under New Jersey State law, a private citizen can bring a case against another citizen claiming that the other person has violated some law. The person who starts the case is called the complaining witness or the complainant. The person being charged with the alleged offense is called the defendant.

A complaint can be filed at the Little Egg Harbor Municipal Court and will be issued by a Court Administrator or Deputy Court Administrator. The complainant will be asked to fill out a form that asks for the name and address of the person they wish to file the complaint against. If they do not know the name and address, a complaint cannot be done until such time as the information can be provided to the court staff.
