If you are going on vacation or plan to be away from your home for an extended period of time, the police departmentís free Home Watch Program can give you peace of mind. Officers will conduct periodic exterior checks while you are away, monitoring your property for inappropriate activity or emergencies.
Enlisting the police department to keep an eye out for suspicious activity while you are away from home does not guarantee against loss, theft, damage or mischief but it can be a useful deterrent to anyone who may be targeting your home for criminal purposes.
For tips on making your home safe while you are away or preventing burglaries while you are home, see our Vacation Awareness Page.
