Vacation Home Watch

About the Program

The Vacation Home Watch, a free service offered by the Weatherford Police Department, gives Weatherford citizens peace of mind while they are away from home. 

How the Program Works

  • Home owners complete a Vacation Home Watch application, which allows the department to collect necessary information so the patrol officers may know the circumstances at the residence. 
  • Homeowners can email their application to or bring a copy to the Weatherford Police Department. 
  • While the homeowner is away, a patrol officer will check the residence at least once daily until the homeowner returns. 
  • During the check, the officer will walk around the residence to make sure that the home is secure and other things seem to be in place. 
  • If an emergency arises the homeowner or the emergency contact person listed on the application will be notified immediately. 
  • Home owners contact the Police Department upon their return home, to advise the department to close out the application.

Information requested on the application includes, but is not limited to:

  • Homeowner contact information, 
  • Emergency contact information, 
  • Locations of lights left on, 
  • Descriptions of vehicles, if any, that will be parked at the residence, and 
  • Names of individuals allowed at the residence while the home owner is away.
