Request a Homeguard Inspection:

The Homeguard Inspection Program is a community-based crime prevention initiative of our Auxiliary officers. This program allows community members to take an active role in making their homes less susceptible to criminal activity.

Members of the Auxiliary Unit attend a person's home and conduct a free home security audit. They inspect windows, doors, and the exterior of the home. A written report is provided to the homeowner detailing potential improvements, for maximum safety.

Officers often recommend Homeguard Inspections to victims of break and enter, or domestic violence, but anyone can request an inspection. Homeguard is meant to help residents improve home security and prevent break-ins and thefts at their home.
