House/Vacation Watches

  • The Sidney Police Department provides House/Vacation Security checks at the request of residents of the City.
  • If you would like to request security checks of your residence while you are out of town, please contact the Cheyenne County Emergency Communications Center at 308-254-5515, or contact any Sidney Police Department officer.
  • We will need some basic information from you:
    • Address, Date of Departure, Date of Return, Contact Phone Number, Name and Contact Information for a friend or neighbor who will be responsible for your residence while you are away.
  • Officers will periodically check your residence, as call load permits, during your absence to ensure it is secure.


We also provide fingerprinting services for employment and licensing Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

  • Individuals can come to the Police Department to be fingerprinted.
  • Businesses or large groups can contact the Police Department to arrange for an officer to come to your location to fingerprint five or more persons.

Ride-Along Program

  • If you are interested in exploring what being a police officer involves, we offer a Ride-Along program.
  • You can ride along with an officer while they are working.
  • This is a great program to allow citizens to catch a glimpse of what their officers' job consists of.
  • If you are interested in participating additional details can be found here: Ride-Along Packet (PDF)
