Summer Vacation House Watch

Summer is here and many of our residents are beginning to take vacations. As a general safety reminder please be careful what you post on social media about leaving for your vacation or posting your status while you are gone. Thieves monitor social media apps and posting that you’re away from your home on vacation is an open invitation for a theft or burglary.

DeLand Police Department provides a free service called Operation House Watch. You can visit our PD lobby for personnel to provide you the Operation House Watch form so we can conduct house checks while you are gone as calls for service allow. The DPD’s lobby business hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm.
