House Checks

The house check program is for all residents that would like the Police Department to be aware of their absences from the city. The following procedure is how the resident will advise us of their absence.

  1. Come to the Police Department and either complete the card at the Police Department or bring it back when completed.
  2. Police Department personnel will check to make sure all necessary information is completed. Once the information has been verified the completed house check card will be given a case number and this information will be forwarded to the Communication Center.
  3. The Officers' will receive the house check cards and will check on the residence either by driving by or with the residents' permission will walk around the residence to check and make sure all exterior window and doors are secured unless otherwise noted on the house check card.
  4. If any alarms or suspicious activity are noted the officer will take the appropriate action. Then the Communication Center will contact the resident and/or their local contact for information or assistance. All information regarding the incident will be listed on the card.
  5. When the resident returns they need to call the Communications Center so that their residence can be removed from House Check.
