So You Have A Vacation Planned, but What About Your House? #GVCopBeat #ShareGJ

Posted on Updated on

With the changing of the seasons comes the opportunity for vacation. Before you jet set off to the nearest beach, or to spend time with your family, it is important to make sure things are squared away at home. As the holiday season is just around the corner, often, thieves take this as an opportunity to break into homes and steal precious items. Don’t let yourself or your valuables become a victim.                                GJPD Logo

The Grand Junction Police Department would like to help protect your home while you are away. Our Vacation House Check program is free, and only requires this  Vacation House Check Form to be filled out and submitted . You can rest easy and enjoy your vacation knowing that we have the safety of your home and the goods inside it better protected.

In addition to filling out the vacation house check form, here are a few tips to help you further protect your home:

  • Buy A Light Switch Timer:
    You may think that leaving a house light or two on during your vacation will prevent thieves, but it could actually lure them in. Having a house light on consistently and through out the night looks odd–and gives the impression that nobody is home to turn it off. Instead, consider purchasing a light switch timer that will automatically turn your lights on and off according to the time schedule you set. Think you’re going to buy one? Check out this Honeywell 7-Day Programmer from Amazon.
  • Don’t Make it Easy for Thieves–Watch What You Post:
    Before you post about your upcoming vacation on your social media accounts- such as Facebook and Twitter- it’s important to stop and think: “Who is actually reading this?” Social networking sites have made it easier for criminals to target their next victim. Be aware that not everything you post is protected, and often, social media sites have a consistently fluctuating privacy policy–before you post, make sure to think twice. In addition to watching your posting habits before your next vacation, it is also important to be careful what you say on your home phone answering machine or voice mail. Callers just need to know you can’t come to the phone, not that you’re not home.
  • Extra! Extra! They’re Not Home to Read It:
    Do you have a daily or weekly newspaper delivered to your driveway? Before you leave on your vacation, consider asking a friend or a family member to pick up the newspapers from your drive way. Having multiple newspapers gathered on the front of your drive way could send a signal to criminals that you’re out of town. If you plan on being gone for an extended period of time, you might consider putting a hold to your mail, as well. Piled up mail in the mailbox could lead to a number of issues, including identity theft. To place a hold to your mail, visit USPS.com.
  • Have A Spare? Don’t Make it Easy:
    Instead of leaving your extra house key under the mat on your front porch, or even under a flower pot, give it to a trusted family member or friend. If for any reason a criminal does get wind that you’re not home, they’re likely to look for a spare key. Don’t make it easy for them to walk away with your items.
  • Lock It Up:
    In addition to following the advice above, don’t forget to lock your house. You might find yourself so eager to leave, that you forget to lock your windows or your back door. Before leaving, double check that all locks are in the locked position and that there are no open windows. If your home has a security system, make sure that is set as well. If you have certain items that have substantial value, such as jewelry, consider locking it up and putting it in a closet under clothing.

Happy travels!
