Vacation Home Check

Vacation Home Check

The Vacation Home Check, a free service offered by the Starkville Police Department, gives Starkville Citizens peace of mind while they are away from home.

How it Works

  • Homeowners print and complete Vacation Home Check Form, which allows the department to collect necessary information so the patrol officers may know the circumstances at the residence.
  • Home owners deliver the application, in person, to the Starkville Police Department.
  • While the homeowner is away, a patrol officer will check the residence at least one time a day until the homeowner returns.
  • During the check, the officer will walk around the residence to make sure that the home is secure and other things seem to be in place.
  • If an emergency arises the homeowner or the emergency contact person listed on the application will be notified immediately.
  • Homeowners contact the Police Department upon their return home to advise the department to close out the application.

Recommended information on the application includes, but is not limited to:

  • Homeowner contact information
  • Emergency contact information
  • Location of lights left on
  • Names of individuals allowed at the residence while the homeowner is away
