In our continuing efforts to engage with the community and provide a proactive approach to crime reduction, the South Russell Police Department has initiated a residential security assessment program for South Russell residents. A residential security assessment consists of an on-site security evaluation of the residence by a South Russell Police Officer using current industry best practices and an assessment template provided by the American Crime Prevention Institute (ACPI).

During the assessment, the officer will focus on simple, target hardening actions the homeowner can take to enhance the security of their property. Once completed, the homeowner will receive a detailed report outlining the specific recommendations.

If you are interested in having an assessment completed on your home, please email the Police Department at
