The Department provides a free vacation watch service to residents of the City of Fitchburg. By listing your home with the Department for a vacation watch, when time permits patrol officers will periodically stop and check on your home. Officers may walk around your home to see if there has been any forced entry or damage. Although this is not a guarantee that your home will not be damaged or burglarized, it gives you some added peace of mind.
We encourage you to make arrangements with a family member, friend or neighbor to check on your home as well.
