House Watch & Application
What is a House Watch?
A House Watch is a request to the Police Department to make additional checks on your residence. This can be for a variety of reasons such as a vacation or business trip. If you are interested in a House Watch, click the above link for a House Watch Form or come by Town Hall to pick up. Your house will receive a little “extra attention” while you’re away.

Tips for while you are away:
Mail/Newspaper: It is always a good idea to contact the Post Office and Newspaper and have them put your services on hold. Or, you may want to have your mail and paper collected by a neighbor or friend. This prevents a build up in front of your house, indicating that nobody has been home for quite a while. Many burglars travel around and target houses with excessive accumulations such as these.
Lights: There are many low cost light timers available on the market. These timers will automatically turn your interior lights on and off at set times, giving the appearance that somebody is home.
Alarms: If you have a residential alarm, make sure it is armed and working properly. It is always a good idea to give the code to a trusted friend or neighbor in case the system malfunctions while you’re away.
