- Vacation House Watch:
As a service to the citizens of the City of Princeton, the Princeton Police Department offers free vacation house checks. The Princeton Police Department will periodically check the exterior of your home while you are away. This service helps to deter potential burglars and provides for additional security while your house is unoccupied.
This service is not recommended for citizens that have friends or family that will be at the residence regularly for such things as yard work, caring for animals or using the amenities at the residence.
