The Peoria Police Department has a new tool for fighting nuisance properties. The Nuisance Property Surveillance Vehicle is a refurbished armored truck 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 Team. So that you know, a request does not guarantee deployment. Requests will only result in the deployment of the Armadillo when the target property meets the necessary criteria.
