Gig Harbor ‘C.O.P.S.’ Offer Free Home Security Services

GIG HARBOR — The Gig Harbor Police Department is offering a couple of free security services to residents that live within the city limits.

The department’s “Citizens Offering Police Support” (C.O.P.S.) volunteer corps are available to visit, survey and guide homeowners in making their homes safer, and potentially less enticing to would-be thieves.

The GHPD is encouraging residents to schedule a “Home Security Survey,” and have a trained C.O.P.S. volunteer visit their home.

Personnel will walk homeowners thought a checklist of important safety considerations, including the storage of valuables (inside and out), and door and lock inspections, along with other suggestions on making one’s home more secure.

C.O.P.S. is also offering free residential vacation checks.

If citizens plan on being away from their homes, they can also contact the department and sign up to have volunteers monitor the perimeter of their residence at random intervals.

To initiate this service, the GHPD asks those interested to visit the department, at 3510 Grandview St., and complete a confidential form that includes emergency contact numbers, and pertinent information about their residence.

For information, contact Sgt. Kelly Busey at (253) 853-2422 or buseyk@cityofgigharbor.net.
