The vacation check does not guarantee that a burglary or other crime will not occur at the residence, and it is only intended to be a request for the officer to check the home periodically, based upon the availability of the officer. Consequently, it is recommended that you make every effort to safeguard against losses including securing of high value property, proper locking devices, alarm systems, etc. No vacation checks while the homeowner is gone from the home are guaranteed. No further police response or protection is being guaranteed by the vacation check other than the normal police service and protection, which is provided to the general public.
Please give us at least 3 days notice before you leave. We may need to ask for additional information.
If you arrive home early from your vacation, you are responsible to contact the police department right away. If you forget to contact the police department, an officer may arrive to check on your residence. Please be prepared to provide your identification to the officer if that happens.
