VACATION HOME MONITORING


If you are going out of town and would like to have our officers make checks on your home while you are gone, call and ask to be put on the Patrol Check List.

Officers will attempt to check your residence and the surrounding area for as long as you are away. Checks are made as part of routine patrol, between calls. Putting your name on the list does not guarantee that your home will be checked daily; rather, checks are made if time allows.
