Residential VARDA Alarms
Unfortunately, due to recent changes in radio technology, the Edgewood Police Department’s residential alarm program has been discontinued as of 2020.
The Commonwealth of Kentucky has partnered with Idemia using their IdentoGO program for electronic fingerprint background services as of 2020. Unfortunately, paper fingerprint cards containing ink prints are no longer being accepted by the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Therefore, fingerprinting services are no longer offered through the Edgewood Police Department.
The Edgewood Police Department recommends that all residents participate in Operation ID. All participants will be given the use of an engraver to mark all items of value in their home, such as televisions, stereos, cameras, etc. These engravers are available free of charge from the Edgewood Police Department. The owner should mark the items with their driver’s license number or identification card number, including the State of issue.
Ride Along Program
Ride-along means to be an official passenger in a patrol vehicle, accompanying an Edgewood Police Officer during part of a normal tour of duty. The primary purpose of a police ride-along is to provide an opportunity for the community to see first hand the day-to-day operations of the Edgewood Police. The ride-along guest receives important insight into what it means to be a police officer. Criminal Justice students and people interested in a career in law enforcement have found it particularly useful. The ride-along program fosters a better understanding of the challenges, hazards and rewards of the police officer’s role in the community.
