Please note, the home check service provided by the Sheriff's Office is a supplement to your home security system, not a replacement or a deterrent.

Home Safety Tips 

If your holiday or vacation plans include being away from your home, we recommend the following safety precautions to keep your property safe:

  • Consider installing a home security system. 
  • Set interior and exterior lights to remain overnight with a timer or security service. 
  • Temporarily stop newspaper deliver and mail service. 
  • Ask a neighbor to monitor your home.
