House Checks

To help residents enjoy their stays away from their homes, whether it is for a vacation or hospitalization, they can do so with a sense of confidence with the implementation of Belleair’s House Check Program. This complimentary service is provided to the residents of Belleair so that no matter how long they are gone, their time is more enjoyable and less worrisome as to the security of their homes. 

How Do I Get A House Check Started? 

To initiate a house check, all a resident needs to do is stop by the Police Department service counter during office hours (Monday through Friday 9:00 am - 5:00 pm) and fill out a quick form. Alternatively, residents may choose to download the House Check form here. After completing the application, residents may bring it to the Belleair Police Department to register. Residents may also call (727) 588-3769 to arrange for the form to be emailed instead.

NOTE: We do request that, upon your return home, you notify the Police Department of your return so that the house watch can be canceled. 

How Does The House Check Work? 

Once you have filled out the House Check form, our Executive Secretary compiles your information. A confidential House Check list is then sent out to officers via the dispatch computer system. With the information provided by you, the officers will go to your residence randomly during shifts, and will conduct a foot patrol around the exterior of the residence to make sure that windows and doors are locked and undamaged. Once the officer has done that, the date, time, and the officer’s badge number are legged, indicating when the residence was checked was completed. This will continue until the end date you have provided. Please contact the Police Department if you need to extend your return date. 

Exceptions

  • Houses that are "For Sale" and empty do not qualify for the House Check Program
  • Rental houses that are empty or between rentals do not qualify for the House Check Program

Neighborhood Watch

Creating a neighborhood watch program within your neighborhood is one of the most effective and least costly answers to crime prevention. Neighborhood watch groups are not only a foundation for crime prevention, but also encourage neighborhood revitalization. The Belleair Police Department endorses and promotes the neighborhood watch concept and encourages Town of Belleair residents to establish and maintain such programs and will assist your neighborhood with these efforts. Contact the Belleair Police Department about starting or joining a neighborhood watch program by calling (727) 588-3769.

Special Permits

The Belleair Police Department oversees the issuance of three levels of special permits:

  • Temporary Activity Permits
  • Special Relief Permits
  • Major Event Special Relief Permits

Information about each of these processes, and application packet for each, is available on the Town’s Special Permits web page.
