The Germantown Police Department is glad to provide this service to citizens. Officers will make a daily check on the security of your home, while you and your family are away for at least four days and up to one month.

To receive this service, fill out a vacation check request form online and submit it to the Police Department or come by the dispatch center and complete a form.

Officers will begin checking the exterior doors and windows on the day you leave and will continue the procedure each day until you return. The officers normally check the home at least twice each day.

Due to the dangers involved, only unoccupied homes will be checked. This service is not available for vacant houses or new houses under construction.
