Tecumseh Police Department offers property inspections for city residents who are going out of town.

Officers will conduct a walk around inspection of the outside of the home to check for any damage or illegal entry. Forms can be filled out at the department Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.  You will be asked to provide a local emergency contact.
