Nuisance Property

The Peoria Police Department has a new tool for fighting nuisance properties.  The Nuisance Property Surveillance Vehicle is a refurbished armored truck that is outfitted with a surveillance system.  The “Armadillo” can be parked in front of drug houses or other properties where quality-of-life issues plague neighborhoods.

If you feel that a property in your neighborhood may qualify for the Nuisance Property Surveillance Vehicle, email your request to the Nuisance Abatement Officer at Please note that a request does not guarantee deployment.  Requests will only result in the deployment of the Armadillo when the target property meets the necessary criteria.
