Police Volunteers Offer Vacation House Checks

Are you planning a summer vacation? Let us watch over your house while you’re away!

Whether you’re gone for a few days, a week, or longer, the Huntington Beach Police Department’s Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) offers a valuable service to monitor your home. Our volunteers conduct thorough exterior perimeter checks and vehicle inspections to help ensure your property stays secure.

When you request this service, please let us know if neighbors, relatives, or friends will check on your home and the type of vehicle they drive. This information helps us ensure that no unauthorized individuals are on your property. HBPD officers will be promptly notified and dispatched to your home if anything suspicious is detected.

To sign up for this FREE service, call the VIPS office at (714) 374-1507 or complete the Vacation House Check online form by clicking here. For guaranteed scheduling, please provide at least one week’s notice. When you return, notify the office using the same number. If you return earlier than expected, contact HBPD’s non-emergency line at (714) 960-8825 and inform the VIPS office.

Don’t wait–volunteer availability is limited. Enjoy your vacation with peace of mind, knowing your home is being watched over.
