When leaving for vacation or when going out of town, you can request a house check of your residence from the Boerne Police Department. As workload allows, patrol officers will check the security of your residence daily. A simple application is filled out with information that is given to the officers and dispatch in regards to your home. Once you return, a simple phone call to the department will remove your home from the list.
Qualified members of the Boerne Police Department can perform a Texas State Insurance Inspection on your home. When your home meets these requirements, complete the form and email it to the Boerne Police Department. Upon receipt, a Boerne Police officer, certified to conduct the inspection, will contact you to make an appointment. If your home passes the inspection, the results will be forwarded to the Texas Department of Insurance who will then mail you a certificate.
In order to qualify, your home must meet the requirements described in the Home Inspection Form (PDF).
The Boerne Police Department utilizes a radar trailer that is set out at various locations within the city. The trailer is used to make drivers aware of their speed. It is also used to collect data to show what times traffic is the heaviest and what times traffic is the fastest. Sergeant James Gonzales is in charge of the radar trailer schedule and can answer any question you might have about it. Complete the Citizen’s Radar / Traffic Enforcement Request form if you are interested in having the radar trailer or officers set up on your street or in your neighborhood to monitor traffic issues.

ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) Training
ALICE is committed to increasing survivability in a violent intruder event through training proactive response options. There are more ways than one to be prepared for a violent event. Whether you are at a mall, in a theater, grocery shopping, attending a game or listening to a concert, you have options. When ALICE response strategies are implemented, unwilling participants in the event are empowered to choose their best survival option. Seconds count during a violent event and the actions taken in between when the event begins, and law enforcement arrives, are significant and can increase survivability. Currently, the Boerne Independant School District has trained most of the staff and administrators. This is a two-hour block of instruction presented by Officer Rebecca Foley and Sgt Walk.
