Police Programs at a Glance

House Check – A program whereby patrol officers check your home while you are not at Wintergreen for an extended period. Owners receive code numbers which are given to the gate officer to let the department know you are leaving for, or returning from, an extended stay.

Ski Equipment – A program designed to register all your ski equipment (serial numbers, make, model, etc.) with the police department. Should your equipment become lost or stolen, information to aid in the recovery and for input into the national crime files would be available. In approximately 95 percent of the cases, persons are unable to furnish this information for more positive identification or reporting purposes.

Operation ID – A program designed to record and mark any valuables you may have at your Wintergreen home. Pictures are also taken for your records should your home be destroyed by fire.

Wellness Watch – As our loved ones age, they periodically need a wellness check to ensure that they are in good health and spirits. Because most people want to remain in their own homes through retirement and old age, the logistics of regular checks can pose a problem, which is compounded if they can no longer drive to appointments themselves. That’s where the Wintergreen Police Department’s Wellness Watch Program comes in. This program was created to provide daily reassurance check-in calls from a member of our Agency to someone in our community needing this service. This telephone check-in program can help our customers remain independent in their homes and give them and their family members peace of mind.

All of the above programs are offered to owners as a service at no cost. Any necessary forms or applications may be obtained by calling or stopping by the Police Department. Phone 434-325-1106. The police department patrols the Wintergreen community twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, and are ready to serve you.
