House Check Program available to Shelby County residents

Jun 11, 2021

The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) is pleased to announce our House Check Program.

“We got the idea to implement this service to the citizens of Shelby County after seeing that other surrounding counties were doing it,” stated Sheriff Kevin W. Windham. “We are here to help protect our citizens and this is the least we can do.”

Residents of Shelby County who will be away from their homes for an extended period of time can fill out a house check request form at the SCSO. Based on officer availability and call volumes, an officer will go by your residence and check on your property until your scheduled return. This program is designed for those who are out of town on vacation, away for work, and other extended circumstances.

Forms are available at the SCSO and must be filled out in person. For more information on this program, please contact SCSO Public Relations Director Leah Chase at 936-598-5601 or by email at
