Vacant House Check Request Form
The Easttown Twp. Police Department takes great pride in ensuring the welfare of our citizens. We are more than happy to check the security of your residence should you leave for an extended period of time. Our officers generally check the residence daily for any signs of forced entry, unlocked doors, or any other physical signs that the security of the home has been breached while you are away. If something should happen while a resident is away, a call back person will be notified of the event.
In order to have your residence checked, the homeowner should complete a vacant house check request. The form should be filled out in its entirety and returned to the Easttown Twp. Police Department (in-person, emailed, or faxed) prior to your departure. The form can be downloaded from the link provided to the left.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact a representative of the ETPD anytime.

Requesting Police Recordings (Video & Audio) in Pennsylvania
Act 22 applies to individuals seeking "any audio recording or video recording made by a law enforcement agency." The Right-to-Know Law does not apply to requests for these recordings.
How to File a Request: Under Act 22, a request for an audio or video recording in the possession of a law enforcement agency must be made within 60 days of the date the recording was made. Requests must be submitted via personal delivery, email, or certified mail. The link to this form can be found to the right of this section.
The request must include:
• The date, time and location of the event recorded;
• A statement describing the requester's relationship to the event recorded; and
• If the recorded incident took place inside a residence, the request must also identify every person present at the time of the recording, unless unknown and not reasonably ascertainable.
Once a request is filed, the agency has 30 days to respond, although the requester and agency can agree to an extension.
