Home Security Services

Township residents can benefit from these free home security services offered by the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

Home Security Audits

The township offers free Home Security Audits to residents who desire information and advice on how to improve the security of their home. A trained deputy will meet residents at their property to conduct a comprehensive review of interior and exterior security factors – including doors, windows, locks, lighting, landscaping and more.

Based on the audit, the officer will provide customized suggestions about how to improve home security. To schedule a Home Security Audit, contact Deputy Brian Burke by email or at 432-2758.

Vacation House Checks

Did You Know?

Our local deputies conducted a total of 1,964 vacation or vacant house checks in 2017.

Vacation house checks from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office can help improve your peace of mind the next time you’re away from home. The service is free to travelers, whether they're leaving for a weekend getaway or a month-long journey.

House checks are done at least once each day while residents are away. Typically, deputies walk around the home, testing windows and doors and looking for signs of change.
