The Joplin Police Department is committed to protecting the property of its citizens. If you own a house or building within the city limits of Joplin and need your property checked for a minimum of one week, fill out the Property Check Form, which will allow us to randomly check on your property during the specified time.
The Joplin Police Sentinels are a group of volunteers who provide various services to the community, including property checks to ensure the security of your property. The Sentinels conduct their checks in a marked vehicle at random times several days per week. They check your property for unlocked/broken/tampered with doors and windows and any other possible signs of unwanted activity. This service is free of charge and takes only a few moments of your time to fill in your information.
