The vacation watch program is provided to all residents in the village. Members of the department will conduct periodic on-site checks of your residence while you are on vacation or away from your residence for an extended period of time. In the event of an emergency, we will work with the person who you designate as an emergency contact to ensure that your residence is safe and secure. A vacation watch is limited to an eight (8) week period unless authorized by the Chief of Police for an extension. Upon your return, you will receive a letter detailing our visits to your home.
