Police officers, including forensics specialists, were called to a residential street after a man was found dead.
Emergency services were called to Chestnut Drive in Greenhill, Herne Bay, at around 6.15pm yesterday following the discovery.
Police said the death of the man, who was in his 30s, was not being treated as suspicious.
A spokesman added: "Next of kin have been informed and a report is being prepared for the coroner."
People took to social media to describe the high police presence.
One poster on the Herne Bay Chatter group, Tanya Cross, said: "Anyone know what's going on in the bay as loads of sirens are going off! But don't know if it's police, or ambulances?"
She later added: "Something is going on.... saw police come out with brown bags and put into a police car then went back into the address."
Susan Ann Carroll said at around 7.45pm: "I drove home from Herne Bay about an hour ago driving back to Ramsgate, loads of police cars and an ambulance drove past me towards Herne Bay."
Claire Hodder also said she saw unusual activity in the area.
She said: "Loads of police cars and ambulances in Chestnut Drive. We drove down that road five minutes ago. Was strange seeing them all."
