Away From Home on Vacation/Business

Notify the police department if you will be away from home. They will need to know what lights will be left on, whether or not vehicles will be parked in the driveway, if anyone will be entering or leaving the premises during your absence, and a phone number where you can be reached during an emergency. The police will then investigate any abnormal circumstances.
