Travel With Ease This Summer

vacation watch (1)Summer is just around the corner! This year, as you plan your family vacations, let the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office or Harris County Constable’s Office ease your mind about traveling! The Woodlands Township Neighborhood Watch encourages residents to take advantage of the free Vacation Watch program. 

With the Vacation Watch program, deputies will regularly drive by your home, check doors and windows to ensure that they are secure, and investigate anything on your property that looks suspicious.

Please Note: The frequency of home checks is dependent upon call volume in the area. Active calls for service will take precedent. Also, this service does not replace your responsibility to properly secure your home; we suggest you also make arrangements with a neighbor to watch your home during your absence.
