Residential Key Program
The Madeira Police Department's residential key program is designed to expedite access to residents in their own homes during medical or other emergencies.  The lockbox program also reduces the likelihood of property damage caused by first responders forcing entry into a home in response to an emergency call.

The lockbox program is open to all Madeira residents, but is especially encouraged for those residents who:
  • Are 65 and above or
  • Are under 65, with a major medical issue that could render them incapacitated or unconscious
How does the program work?

1.  The eligible participant will complete a Key Program application for the Madeira Police Department.  Applications can be picked up at the front desk of the Police Department or in person from any Police Officer

2.  Completed applications can be dropped off at the front desk of the Police Department or given in person to any Police Officer.  The participant will provide a spare house key when turning in the application.

3.  Once the application is received a small sticker will be affixed to the residence.

4.  The officer will determine the best location for the sticker that allows quick visibilty for the emergency responders, but is not readily visible to typical street or pedestrian traffic.

5.  The key will only be used during an emergency call, and when responders can't make entry without using force.  At no time will the key be used or will entry be made without authorization.

6.  There is no cost to participate in the Key Program, other than the cost of the spare key.

7.  A participant may withdraw from the Key Program at any time by contacting the police department.  After the key is returned to the participant, the sticker will be removed from the residence and returned to the Police Department.

Mobile Speed Trailer and Speed Surveys
The Madeira Police Department has a mobile speed sign that is used to allow drivers to see their speeds and make them aware of the speeds they travel on our streets.  The sign is placed in locations where residents have complained about speeding or on main roads.  If you would like the speed sign placed in your neighborhood please email Lt. Paul Phillips

A speed survey is conducted when residents have a concern about drivers speeding in their neighborhood.  An officer will respond to the neighborhood and record speeds of motorists to determine the average speed, high speed, and low speed on the street. This information is useful to determine if police resources need to be deployed to the area in an effort to reduce speeding violations.  Information needed for the survey will be the times of day and days of the week as well as any other pertinent information as to when the violations are occuring. Please contact Lieutenant Phillips to have a speed survey done on your street
