Vacation House-Check Program

Vacation House Check

The Waukegan Police Department offers a house-check program for citizens who are leaving their home for a period of no longer than 30 days. Our officers will check your residence every day that you are gone as time permits. The Vacation House Check Program is not a substitute for diligent security and proper arrangements.

Please remember when leaving your home for an extended period of time to cancel your mail, newspapers, and deliveries. Try to arrange for a neighbor or family member to keep an eye on your home as well. The Police cannot ensure that your home will remain secure while you are away, but the House Check Program will supplement your efforts to keep your home secure while you are away.
