The Vacation House Check service is available to any resident who would like an officer to periodically check on your house while you are away. To set up vacation checks:

  1. Fill out the form below or call our department at (513) 899-2211 and provide us with detailed information about your house while you are away.  If no one answers, you can leave a message indicating the dates you will be gone, who has emergency access to your house, and a description of any vehicles that might be left in the drive.
  2. Be sure to call at least 12 hours before you leave for vacation.
  3. As time permits, our diligent officers will check your house periodically while you are away.


Suggestions Before Leaving on Vacation
By keeping the appearance of your home as normal as possible, it will help to conceal the fact your home is vacant. 

  • Keep shades and blinds in their normal positions.
  • Stop mail or newspaper delivery or arrange for someone to pick them up.
  • Lock all doors and windows.
  • Arrange for lawn service or snow removal at proper times.
  • Put timers on several household lights so they turn on and off at appropriate times.
  • Leave a radio on or put it on a timer.
  • Inform a trusted neighbor of your travel plans and ask him or her to keep an eye out for suspicious activity.
  • Don't allow deliveries of any kind to accumulate on your doorstep.
  • Ask a neighbor to park in your driveway overnight.
  • Refrain from publicizing your trip ahead of time.
  • Turn down the ringer on your telephone so that if a burglar is around, he won't be alerted to your absence by a ringing phone.
