Vacation Home Checks

For a number of years The Newtown Township Police Department has provided this service to residents and property owners. While on routine patrol a police officer pays extra attention to your home while you are away. This service can be provided by simply calling the Police Business Office at (215) 579-1000 x398 prior to the departure date and providing the following information:

  • Name

  • Address of property

  • Date you are leaving & when you plan on returning

  • Emergency contact information & phone number

  • Is the property alarmed?

  • Will anyone else be on the property, checking on pets?

In addition to the property check here are some tips to help keep your home secure in your absence:

  • Ask a trusted friend to check on the home on a daily basis

  • Cancel mail and newspaper deliveries unless you have someone to pick them up on a daily basis to avoid accumulation.

  • Use automatic timers for lights both inside and outside the home

  • Make sure all doors and windows are secured

  • In the summer have someone cut the grass while you are away

  • Turn down the ringer on the phone, an unanswered phone will alert someone outside that no one is home
