If you’re going on vacation this summer, take a moment to let the Southborough Police Department know. They’ll add you to their list and make an extra point of driving by your home while you’re away. From the SPD Facebook page:
If you are going away on a vacation this summer, we just wanted to remind our residents that you can always ask us to include your home on our list of “vacation house checks”. While our officers are on routine patrol of the town, we’ll have them swing past your house and check to make sure everything is in good order. If you do decide to add your address to our list, be sure to let us know if you’re going to have a car parked in your driveway, and if you’ll be having someone check up on your home (permission to be there) while you are away. Also, make sure to leave a number that you could be reached at in case of an emergency.
You can request a vacation check by calling the Southborough Police Department at 508-485-2147.
