Deputy Security Check

Deputy Security Check

Leaving for warmer weather? Or just taking a vacation?

Spring Lake Township, through its community policing officer, provides free vacation security checks to its citizens who will be away from their homes, businesses, or other facilities for a period of time. Deputies will periodically check the exterior of the property. This service is offered to deter potential burglars and provides additional security while your property is unoccupied.

Any resident that will be out of the area may use the program, whether you are leaving for a short time or if you will be gone for several months. To request a property check, please submit the Property Check Form at least two weeks prior to your departure.
