As the summer is approaching us and people leave for last-minute get-aways, it’s a good idea to remember to notify friends and neighbors so they can help keep your home safe from burglars.

Residents of College Park have one other group who can help keep watch over their homes while they are away: our Police Department.

The department will provide premise checks to the city residents free of charge. Any resident of the city can use this service for everything from overnighters to extended stays away.

Once a premise check is requested, county officers will visit a resident’s home to inspect the property, walking around to check for broken windows, suspicious vehicles and other signs of a possible intruder. Any suspicious activity is addressed, recorded and relayed to the property owner.

Residents may use this link to request vacation premise checks of their property by our City Contract Police.
