Prescription Drug Collection

In partnership with CVS Health, LWPD is proud to offer residents a safe and environmentally responsible way to dispose of unwanted, unused or expired medication (including controlled substances). By disposing of unneeded medicine, residents can decrease the potential for prescription drug abuse, especially among young people. The drug collection unit is conveniently located in the lobby of the Police Department which is open to the public on weekdays from 8-5.

For more information on the Medicine Disposal for Safe Communities Program, please call 1-866-559-8830 or visit this website.


Citizen-provided security camera footage is increasingly becoming an invaluable asset to LWPD, helping establish leads and identify perpetrators. Surveillance video recorded by cameras owned by residents and business owners has resulted in the arrests of numerous criminals. SafeCam is your opportunity to make the neighborhood in which you live and work a safer place for the entire community. Registering your camera not only helps deter crime, but assists the Department in its overall crime prevention strategy in your neighborhood. Click here to learn more.

Vacation House Check

As a service to the citizens of the City of Lake Worth, the Lake Worth Police Department offers free vacation house checks.  Patrol Officers will periodically check the exterior of your home while you are away.  This service helps to deter potential burglars and provides for additional security while your house is unoccupied.

This service is not recommended for citizens that have friends or family that will be at the residence regularly for such things as yard work, caring for animals or using the amenities at the residence.

If you are interested and will be on vacation for at least one week, but not more than two weeks, you can sign-up for this service by completing a Vacation House Check form and returning it to Lake Worth Police Department prior to leaving on vacation. Forms are also available at Lake Worth Police Department.
