Vacation Watch


Planning that upcoming vacation? One item on your preparation list should be a stop by the Police Department to sign up for the "Vacation Watch" program. This program works to ensure the safety of your home while you are away. Citizens living within the City limits can be placed on the "Vacation Watch" list by completing a form at the Police Department. The form asks for emergency contact information, a description of vehicles that will be parked at the residence, descriptions of maintenance work that will be done while the resident is on vacation and the names of people that will be checking the property while on vacation. The officer will check the exterior of the residence daily. If any sign of forced entry or unexpected change occurs, the police officer will refer the information provided and notify the emergency contacts listed.  This is a service to residents within the City limits.  An officer will go out and physically check the exterior of the house once a day.  If anything unusual is found the callout is contacted.  We strongly suggest mail and newspaper delivery is stopped prior to the departure and that a key is left with one of the callouts listed.

This service is not for vacant houses, houses for sale or hospital stays.
