Going on Vacation? Don’t Forget to Sign Up for Vacation House Watch

If you’re heading out of town for Spring Break don’t forget to sign up for the Vacation House Watch Program!

The Southlake Police Department is here to help keep an eye on things while you’re away from home. All you need to do is sign up for the Vacation House Watch Program located on the City of Southlake website.

By signing up for the free service, a police officer will check on your home (once per shift) to ensure that it is locked and secured. Homeowners are encouraged to utilize this program in order to feel more comfortable about leaving their homes for an extended period of time. “The Southlake Police Department takes a very proactive approach to fighting crime, and this is one more way in which we can offer security and some peace of mind to members of our community,” says Police Chief James Brandon.

Also, a homeowner can easily request a date change, if they plan to return early or extend their vacation. All the homeowner needs to do is call the non-emergency number for our 911 dispatch center at 817‐743‐4522. Please include your name, home address and new dates and the updated information will be passed on to officers.

So as you’re planning your fun-filled family vacation don’t forget to sign up for the Vacation House Watch Program. Remember to complete the online form on the City’s website.

If you need more information please contact the Police Department during normal business hours at (817) 748-8114.
