VACATION CRIME WATCH PROGRAM

Citizen volunteers provide a valuable service by checking homes of residents who are out of town. Volunteers inspect enrolled residences several times a week to make sure all entrances are secure. If something unusual or suspicious is found, patrol officers are called to investigate.

One program requirement is that all requests must be, at least, three days. (i.e. Friday, Saturday & Sunday) The following residences are not eligible for this program:

  • Apartments
  • “For Sale” homes
  • Commercial properties
  • Bank owned & vacant homes

Sign Up

If you are leaving town and are interested in signing up for the free Vacation Crime Watch Program, download the application (PDF).

Submit Form

Completed forms can be submitted either by email to Sergeant Edmonds or dropped off at the North (3002 Wetmore Avenue) or South (1121 SE Everett Mall Way) Precinct during normal business hours at least 1 week before leaving.
