As a Huntington Beach resident, you have the advantage of a Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) in your city. One of the many services RSVPs offer HB residents is vacation checks. If you are going on vacation, notify the HBPD RSVP office to sign up for a vacation check. RSVPs will conduct an exterior security check of your home. Exterior areas of your home that are not accessible, will not be checked. If something appears suspicious, the RSVPs shall call for the assistance of a police officer.

Please try to provide us with at least a 1 week notice (due to scheduling). We do understand that in an emergency that may not always be possible. If you have any questions or need more information about the HBPD RSVP Program please call the RSVP office at 714-374-1507.

When you return, call the RSVP office at 714-374-1507 and notify them of your arrival. If you come home earlier than stated on the form you submit, please notify HBPD non emergency at 960-8825 and RVSP office. RSVPs will then send you a report of their activities while checking your house.

If you do not have email, you can apply for a vacation check in person at the police department or by calling the RSVP office at 714-374-1507. You must call or we must receive this form at least 7 working days in advance of your vacation.
