Did you know the Orange Police Department offers free vacation checks for residents? This is a great way to have your home checked while you are away.

Program lights and radios to come on during various times of the day/night
Arrange for family or neighbors to watch the home
Lock doors to home/vehicles and place all valuables out of site
Do not leave travel brochures and maps out for easy visibility to passerby’s
