Vacation Watch

  1. Vacation Watch

    It is a fact that almost all types of personal and household crime are highest in the warm months when people spend more time away from home on vacations or are involved in outdoor activities. Avoid becoming part of this statistic by following these suggestions to protect your home, property, and family while you're relaxing and having fun!


    Utilize this checklist to secure your home.

    • Make sure your home looks lived in, not empty:
    • Stop mail and cancel all deliveries or ask a friend to make daily collections
    • Hide empty garbage cans
    • Leave shades and blinds in normal positions
    • Put an automatic timer on several lights and the radio
    • Have a neighbor keep your property maintained.
    • Leave a key with a trusted neighbor.
    • Store valuables in a safe deposit box.
    • Tell a neighbor you trust your departure and return dates. Supply an itinerary with phone numbers where you can be reached in an emergency.
    • Ask police if they have a "vacation home check" program.
    • Lock all windows and doors. Double check basement and garage doors before you leave.
