Ask HPD: House Checks

04/09/2014


Q. How do I request an officer to check on my home?

A. We conduct what's called a house check. Residents who want a house check can call 911, non-emergency line, to make a request. House checks are always conducted by on-duty uniformed officers under certain conditions:
• The resident must be away from home for a minimum of five consecutive days.
• A home can be checked for a maximum of 30 days.
• The home must be unoccupied during the entire house check period.
• Open or indefinite return dates are not accepted.
• Only single family homes are checked. No stores, construction sites, apartments, condominiums, or townhouses. Houses that are for sale or rent or being fumigated will not be checked.
