Home Security Inspections

The Elk Point PD will be offering a free home security consultation and inspection to residents and businesses within Elk Point. The inspection and consultation will involve a checklist of common security weaknesses that many homes and businesses have and will allow a home or business owner to understand what they can do to make their home or place of business safer and more secure.

 

The inspection will begin with a self assessment checklist that can be picked up by the homeowner or business owner at the PD or downloaded below. This checklist will identify areas that need improvement. 

 

Then an officer will meet with the home or business owner and discuss things that can be done to improve the security of the home or office. The PD will also provide, at the owner's discretion, a DVD video record of the premises and their contents to aid in keeping a record of their home or business should they ever need it.

 

The check list can be downloaded Here . 

 

If you would like to schedule a security consultation, just download and print the checklist, fill it out and give an officer a call at 605-356-2184.
