Community Programs

Neighborhood Watch Program

Responsible citizens display a notification on their residence that they do watch for suspicious activity in their neighborhood and they do call the police.

House Check Program

A program available for those citizens who will be away from their residences on vacation or other short periods of time. Upon requesting the service of a local law enforcement officer will meet with the resident to obtain information, such as others who will be checking, pets in the home, emergency contact, and all other pertinent information. The officer will check the exterior of the residence and note any security problems. While the occupant is away, local law enforcement will check the security of the residence several times a day and log their findings. The emergency contact will immediately be notified of any problems. The occupant notifies the police upon their return home and an officer will respond to verify.
