Like most other police agencies in other communities, the Vernon Hills Police Department will check your home periodically while you are away. This is a free service for the residents of Vernon Hills. There are just a few rules:
The request for a house watch can only come from the homeowner.
House watch requests in excess of 14 days will be conducted on a weekly basis instead of a daily basis.
We cannot conduct house watches for apartments or units that share a common door entryway to multiple units.
We will not conduct house watches if the home owner has someone staying in the house.
Request a Watch On-Line
To make the entire process easier, better and more consistent for all parties, we will only accept house watches that are requested on-line.
