One important step in that process should be to notify the police department that you willl be away from home by completing a Housewatch Request Form. Doing so alerts patrol officers to your home's unoccupied status so that they may conduct periodic checks of the perimeter and verify that there is nothing unusual occurring on or about your premises. Please note that checks are performed as manpower, call volume, and time constraints permit. This program is meant to enhance existing security measures you should have in place, such as an alarm system. It in no way should be your only line of defense while away. Housewatch forms may be obtained at the police department or downloaded here. Completed forms may be dropped off, mailed, or faxed to the department. Be prepared to supply dates you will be gone, phone number of a person to contact in case of an emergency, description of vehicles left in the driveway and location of lights that are on timers.
