House Watch Program



If you are going on vacation or plan to be away from home for an extended period of time, the Police Departmentís house watch program can give you some peace of mind.

Enlisting the Police Department to keep an eye out for suspicious activity while you are away from home does not guarantee against loss, theft, damage or mischief but it can be a useful deterrent to anyone who may be considering accessing your home for criminal purposes.

Whether or not you avail yourself of this service, there are some steps you can take prior to departing to safeguard your property.


  • Stop mail and newspaper delivery

  • Leave shades/blinds in normal positions

  • Put automatic timers on lights; set the timers so they will turn on and off at random times in different rooms

  • Leave a key with a trusted neighbor in case of emergency

  • Lock all windows and doors

  • Have someone park a car in your driveway occasionally ie: neighbor or friend

  • Arrange to have the lawn mowed/snow plowed

  •  Shut and lock your garage door

  • Keep jewelry and other valuables in places other than the master bedroom (this is the first place a burglar looks)

  • Ask a neighbor to put out your garbage cans

House checks are not conducted on homes that are occupied for any length of time during the homeownerís absence.

This is open to homeowners who will be away for at least two days, and generally not more than two weeks.


We ask that you contact us upon your return home to terminate the watch.

To sign up for the house watch program, you must call the Burbank Police Department at 708-924-7300.
