Vacation Safety Tips for Your Home

Home Burglary

Spring Break is here, and while many families and individuals leave town for vacations, precautions should be taken to ensure the safety of your home while you're away. Check out the following tips from the Deerfield Police Department:

  • Resist the urge to mention your trip on social media or in public. Don't tip criminals off by sharing too much information on your social networks. 
  • Make an inventory of your valuables, including serial numbers and photos.
  • Keep important documents, financial information & small valuables in a fireproof safe, discreetly hidden in your house.
  • Stop the newspaper and mail, or ask a trusted neighbor to pick them up.
  • Park your car inside the garage – and ask a neighbor to park in your driveway occasionally.
  • Put at least one light on a timer.
  • Arrange for your lawn to stay trimmed (summer) or your driveway to be plowed (winter).
  • Notify your home security company that you’ll be out of town.  
  • Leave your emergency contact information with a neighbor. You may also submit a Vacation Watch Form to the Deerfield Police Department. In the event there is an emergency at your house, we will then know who to contact.

One long horn blast indicates that there is a strong risk of lightning, while three short horn blasts signal that the threat has passed.
