Residential Security Checks

 Residential security checks are provided to any year round residents while they are out of town. A uniformed Patrol Officer will inspect the residence at least once in a 24-hour period.  The officer will complete an operations report after each inspection of the residence, and any abnormality discovered will be noted on the report.  However, the duration of this service is limited to 2 weeks.  If you are planning a vacation and would like a security check of your home, you can contact the Police Department at 252-261-3895 and provide our records personnel with the information or complete the form below and bring it in to the Police Department.
