If you are interested in having a vacation check of your residence conducted while you are away, please come by the department during regular business hours. Below are some tips to keep your home safe while you are away:
Do not publicize the fact that you are going on vacation
Put lights and a radio on timers
Burn an outside light all night, not just when you are away
Do not close your blinds and curtains if you do not normally do so while you are home
Do not stop deliveries: have a neighbor pick them up for you, as well as circulars that accumulate by the front door
Make arrangements to have the lawn cut while you are away
Turn your telephone ringer down to low or turn on the answering machine. Do not leave messages saying that you are on vacation or when you will return home
Store items such as lawn furniture, garden tools, and hanging baskets in a secure area of your residence
Ask neighbors to look out for your residence while you are away
Consider asking a neighbor to park a vehicle in your driveway during your absence
Leave a phone number with a neighbor where you can be contacted in case of emergency
