Chief John Seay

One of four programs, that Thomson’s police chief hoped to implement in 2013, is described as a major success, while the remaining were tabled due to economic constraints.
Thomson Police Chief John Seay, who completed his first year in office in December, said House Watch, the program where police officers on patrol perform security checks on residences of absent homeowners, has been well received by Thomson residents.
“House Watch has been a major success,” the chief said. “Not a day goes by that someone doesn’t call to say I am going out of town and what do I need to do?”
In the program, a person residing within the city limits of Thomson would fill out a form at the Thomson Police Department headquarters on Main Street three to four days before departing town. The house will then to be assigned to officers to watch while the resident is absent.
