If you are planning a vacation, don't forget to let the Gilbert Police Department in on your plans.
When a resident of Gilbert goes on vacation, the Police Department can offer extra patrol to check on your property. The Vacation Watch Program should give you some peace of mind while you're away. Please submit your request at least a week prior to your absence.
Here's how it works:
Complete and submit a Request Vacation Watch online or call the Crime Prevention Unit at (480)503-6527 to complete one.
**NOTE: The Vacation Watch program is not intended for periods of time greater than eight weeks or homes for sale. If you will be gone more than eight weeks, you must re-submit your Vacation Watch at the end of each eight week period. Requests submitted for longer than eight weeks will be patrolled for the first eight weeks only. **
Along with notifying us of your absence, here are a few other safety measures you will want to follow.
