The Atkinson County Sheriff's Office provides vacation checks to residents within the county to whom no other law enforcement agency provides services. If you are going on vacation and will be away from your residence, we encourage you to complete this online form requesting that our patrol deputies make periodic checks of your premises. Upon your return, we will forward to you an overview of the dates/times when your residence was checked. Vacation checks will be performed for a time period not to exceed 21 days. Request for vacation checks lasting longer than 21 days will be classified as extra patrol.
NOTE: For the safety of our Deputies and any person(s) who may be staying at your residence we ask that you NOT sign up for a vacation check if your residence will be occupied during your time away from your home. Thank you for your understanding. Again, we will not conduct vacation checks of any residence which is situated in a jurisdiction that has its own law enforcement agency.

Knowledge is Power - Learning simple crime prevention techniques and employing them can dramatically decrease your chances of crime happening to you.
Zero Tolerance - Active communities are the best partners the police have when it comes to fighting crime. Showing that small crimes and nusiance activities will not be tolerated in your neighborhood sends clear signals to criminals to stay away. That means painting over graffiti, posting block watch signs and reporting suspicious activity.
GET INFORMED AND STAY SAFE!
Staying Safe after Crime - If you are a survivor of crime or are in an abusive situation, you may feel a loss of power and control in your life. Recognizing this and the steps you can take to support and protect yourself can increase your sense of security.

TIP OF THE DAY:
Keep your car keys/remote next to your nightstand if you think someone is trying to enter your home or break into your car..... Press the car horn on your remote, it will sound off until you decide to turn it off, and give you time to call 911 and the Deputy's to arrive.
