What is a residential lock box program?
For a small fee, residents can purchase a small, over the door “LOK BOX®” for their home that is only accessible by the Police or Fire Department during an emergency. We've partnered with Roper Lock Box in Hudson, Ohio to keep costs minimal for this program that is geared towards residents with medical needs or physical limitations that could prevent them from unlocking their front door during an emergency.
Why would I want this?
During an emergency, if your doors are locked, precious time is wasted forcing doors open. Your door key is placed inside this box for use by the Police and Fire Departments, but only during an emergency.
Is it secure?
Only on-duty Police Officers and Fire Fighters/EMS will have access to the specialty key needed to access your lock box. The location of the box at your home is immediately available to emergency dispatchers who will securely relay the information to emergency responders.
Is this program available to anyone?
The residential lock box program is geared toward residents with medical issues, limited mobility, and other needs, however any Streetsboro resident may participate. These lock boxes can only be placed at residences within our response area and will not be accessible to another emergency agency outside of Streetsboro. The residential lock box is NOT available to businesses.
Completed residential lock box application with full payment can be mailed in, or dropped off at the fire station at 9184 State Route 43, weekdays between 9am & 3pm.
