House Check Program
The Youngsville Police Department provides a free property security check for citizens who will be away from their residence for an extended period, not to exceed 14 days. This program is a public service to help safeguard citizens' property and allow the department to notify homeowners in the event of a problem regarding their residence.

As part of the program, police officers will conduct a periodic security check and inspect doors and windows to ensure all entries appear secured and untouched. If an officer discovers that the residence has been broken into or a crime has occurred, the designated “emergency contact” will be notified so the residence can be secured, and appropriate police action taken. This service does not include feeding animals, watering plants, picking up mail and/or newspapers or similar types of activity.

In order for a citizen to qualify for this program, the following must be met:
• Residence must be within the incorporated limits of the Town of Youngsville
• A fully completed House Check Request Form must be submitted. The House Check Request form may be submitted online or in person to the Youngsville Police Department.

Shop With A Cop
The Shop with a Cop program will pair police officers with children in the community to provide them with a winter coat, socks, clothes and toys.  Not only does it provide an opportunity to build a positive relationship between officers and children, it shows a true giving spirit to those in need.  2021 Nomination Form

Project ChildSafe
Project ChildSafe (https://projectchildsafe.org/)  is the largest, most comprehensive firearms safety education program in the U.S. It was developed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade association for the firearms industry, and is committed to promoting genuine firearms safety through the distribution of safety education messages and free firearm safety kits. The kits include a cable-style gun-locking device and a brochure that discusses safe handling and secure storage guidelines to help deter access by unauthorized individuals. The Youngsville Police Department partners with Project ChildSafe to provide citizens with the free firearm safety kits.  Please stop by the Youngsville Police Department during normal business hours (Monday-Friday 8:30 am-4:30 PM) to get your safety kit. 

Drug Take Back
The Youngsville Police Department has a Pharmacy Drop box located in its lobby where individuals can anonymously turn in unused, unwanted, or expired medications for safe disposal.   The drop box in the lobby can be accessed during normal business hours, Monday-Friday 8:30 am- 4:00 PM. Furthermore, we hold drug take back events throughout the year to give additional opportunities to the public to safely dispose of medications.  Items that are acceptable are over the counter medications, prescription medications, prescription patches, prescription ointments, vitamins, and pet medications.  Items that we DO NOT accept trash, regulated medical waste, sharps, syringes, thermometers, hazardous waste, aerosols, illicit drugs, and commercial waste.

National Night Out

National Night Out (https://natw.org/about/) is an annual community-building event that partners law enforcement agencies with local businesses, citizens, community leaders and neighborhoods to promote a true sense of community.  It is a great opportunity to bring police and the community together under positive circumstances.

Toys for Tots
The Youngsville Police Department partners with the Marine Corps to collect toys for their Toys for Tots program.  The Youngsville Police Department is a toy drop site during normal business hours.  In addition, we hold an annual Fill-a-Cruiser Toy Drive.  

MISSION: The basic mission of the Marine Toys for Tots Program is to collect new unwrapped toys and distribute those toys to less fortunate children at Christmas.
GOAL: The primary goal of Marine Toys for Tots is, through the gift of a new toy, help bring the joy of Christmas and send a message of hope to America's less fortunate children.
