House checks are a service the Black Mountain Police Department offers for citizens who are leaving on vacation, or will be away from their property over an extended period of time. They also check several summer homes in our jurisdiction. This service is recorded and an officer will physically go by and check property while owners are away. To request this service, a property owner can stop by the Police Department and fill out a request, or the request form can be completed online through our website.
We offer well-being checks for our elderly citizens. Phone contact is made three times a week to check on any needs these individuals may have. If contact cannot be made an officer is dispatched to the residence.
