Special house checks are provided for families that are away for the weekend or on vacation, and are leaving young adults or older children at home. The check identifies who is permitted to be at the home and authorizes police to check the residence and take whatever action is necessary if persons not allowed on the property are present. The original request will be filed at the police department and a copy shall be left with the homeowner to post at the residence. This procedure may reduce unauthorized house parties when the parents are not home. An application may be picked up at the police station.
