When leaving for vacation or when going out of town, you can request a house check of your residence from the Boerne Police Department. As workload allows, patrol officers will check the security of your residence daily. A simple application is filled out with information that is given to the officers and dispatch in regards to your home. Once you return, a simple phone call to the department will remove your home from the list.
Qualified members of the Boerne Police Department can perform a Texas State Insurance Inspection on your home. Citizens can receive up to a 5% discount on their homeowner's insurance premium by meeting the State's minimum standards.
When your home meets these requirements, complete the form and email it to the Boerne Police Department. Upon receipt, a Boerne Police officer, certified to conduct the inspection, will contact you to make an appointment. If your home passes the inspection, the results will be forwarded to the Texas Department of Insurance who will then mail you a certificate. That certificate should then be mailed to your homeowner's insurance agency for the discount.
In order to qualify, your home must meet the requirements described in the Home Inspection Form (PDF).
