Residents who will be away from their homes due to vacations or other circumstances may request that Police officers conduct periodic external checks of their residences while they are away. Residents may stop by the police department’s front desk to complete a Vacation Watch Card prior to their departure and should come back upon return to sign off on their cards and discontinue their requests.
We strongly encourage residents to partner with the Police Department in ensuring the security of their homes by taking the following preventive measures:
Discontinue newspaper and mail delivery
Utilize automatic light timers in various rooms
Use rods or other blocking devices in sliding door tracks
Set alarm systems, if possible
Enlist a trusted neighbor to keep an eye out for anything unusual or concerning
