House or Business Security Watch
The Osage Police department offers the residents of Osage a
House and/or Business Security Watch. Residents may contact the
agency prior to a vacation or business trip and request that a
patrol car make periodic checks by their home or business while
they are away. Simply contact the department at (641) 732-3777
prior to your departure and request a security check. You can
also fill out the
Security Check Form
and fax it at (641) 732-4483 or bring in
the form to 432 Main Street.
When making vacation plans, or any time that your home will be
unoccupied for a period of time, remember to arrange to have
lights turned on by timers at varying times while you're away.
Have grass cut in summer, snow shoveled in winter, and mail &
newspapers picked up or cancelled so that it's not obvious that
no one is at home.
Remember, even with the police watching
your home, good neighbors are the best defense against criminal
activity. Get to know your neighbors and watch out for each
NOTE: We do request that upon your
return home that you notify us so that the house watch can be
cancelled. You can do this by calling the Police Department at
