House Check Program

The Elizabethtown Police Department’s House Check Program provides a free security check for homeowners who will be away from their residence on vacation, not to exceed 30 days. This program is a public service to help safeguard a homeowner’s property and allow the department to notify homeowners in the event of a problem regarding their residence.

As part of the program, homes are periodically checked by an officer during the homeowner's absence. Police officers patrol the property to ensure the home is secure and that the windows and doors are closed and undamaged. If an officer discovers that the residence has been broken into or a crime has occurred, the designated “emergency contact” will be notified so the residence can be secured and appropriate police action taken. This service does not include feeding animals, watering plants, picking up mail and/or newspapers or similar types of activity.
