What activities are performed during a vacation watch?
- Deputies walk the accessible (unlocked / open) areas of the property.
- Doors, vehicles, garages, etc. are checked to ensure everything appears secure.
- Person(s) on the property are approached to confirm they are authorized to be there.
- Frequently pick up newspapers and packages left at the entrance, so they are not visible to the public. This prevents package theft and shows that the house is being monitored.
What communication is provided?
- An automated confirmation email is generated by the computer system when a watch is completed, if the homeowner has requested to receive email updates.
- A call is made to the phone number(s) provided by the resident if the officer finds an issue with the home (broken window, burglary, or anything that is considered suspicious).
If a criminal incident has occurred:
- The officer will make a report and stay in contact with the resident. The case will be assigned to our Criminal Investigation Division for investigation.
