Carlinville Police Department offers vacation security checks to residents. Officers will do a periodic check of the exterior of your home while you are away.
- What is a House Check? A: Your house will be checked by an Officer every other day. This, of course, depends on the manpower and availability of Officers.
- What does the Officer do when checking my house? A: The Officer will walk around the residence to ensure the house is secured and there are no signs of forced entry. They will also be looking for any signs that unwanted persons, or vehicles have been there. They will watch for things that may seem out of the ordinary. The Officer will log the times of the check in their activity log.
- What happens if something is wrong? A: The person(s) you list as an emergency contact will be notified, most likely you will also be notified immediately afterwards. Don't forget to give us your cell phone number in case of an emergency.
