Home Safety and Security Inspections

The HCSO’s Crime Prevention Unit conducts free home security inspections for a possible 5% discount on your homeowner’s insurance premium. Inspections are conducted by HCSO deputies who are certified Crime Prevention Specialists. In order to qualify, your home must meet the requirements click here.

When your home meets these requirements, complete the form and mail it to the HCSO address indicated. Once a Program request is received, a deputy will contact you to schedule an on-site inspection. There is typically a two-week waiting period before an inspection can be performed.

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 any applicable discounts.
