Vacation House Checks

As a service to our residents, the Lower Swatara Township Police Department offers free vacation house checks. Officers will, when time permits, periodically do a visual inspection of the exterior of your home while you are away. This courtesy is extended based on the availability of our Officers. This helps to deter potential burglars and provides for additional security while your house is unoccupied. This is a temporary service not to exceed 30 days.

Houses not eligible for the service are:

1. Houses unoccupied and under construction.
2. Houses unoccupied and listed for sale/show by realtors.
3. Houses where the owner has hired or appointed another person to periodically be there.

Property owners whose houses fall under these exclusions may request extra patrol.
Additional information about vacation house checks or extra patrol requests may be obtained by calling the Lower Swatara Township Police Department at: (717) 939-0463.
