Dark House Program

November 22, 2022

After a two-year hiatus, Oro Valley Police Department is proud to announce that the Oro Valley Police Department (OVPD) Darkhouse Program is finally back!

Darkhouse is one of their most popular programs at the Community Resources Unit and, after a lengthy process to modernize the hardware and software, it is back and better than ever!

The Darkhouse Program allows Oro Valley residents the ability to register their unoccupied homes to be checked by members of the Citizen Volunteer Assistants Program (CVAP) on a regular basis while you are out of town or on vacation for at least seven days.

The primary purpose of this program is to offer vacationing, seasonal and year-around residents the reassurance that if a problem exists at their property, such as suspicious activity, utility emergencies, or other emergency conditions, the resident or their CVAP members will check the exterior of your home for any concern and will notify you if any are found.

Registration is online and completely free!  Visit this page for more information or to register your home. Because the program was re-designed from the ground up all previous Darkhouse registration numbers and forms are no longer valid.  You will need to register online as we are not taking walk-ins.
