The Biddeford Police Department provides exterior security checks of your home while you are out-of-town. This service is designed to give our citizens some peace of mind while away from home.
Please be mindful that this service does not guarantee that a burglary or some other crime will not occur at your residence. We will make every effort to do a cursory check of the residence on a daily basis, but due to fluctuations in calls for service or other priorities, we simply can’t guarantee that every scheduled check will occur. Thus, it is important that you make every effort to safeguard high financial and sentimental value items against losses by using proper locking devices, safety deposit boxes, alarm systems, etc.
To qualify as a property check, the property must be a residence that is normally occupied for at least nine (9) consecutive months during a calendar a year, and there must be an emergency contact number(s). This service is not available for apartments, condominiums, abandoned houses or buildings under construction.
To use this service, please download the Security Check Application, complete it, and bring it to the Biddeford Police Station. Security Check requests will not be accepted by mail, e-mail, or via the phone. One of our officers will meet with you to review the application, and explain this program further.
When you are away from home, please don’t forget to:
