House Watch Program
House Watch Program

The Davison City Police Department's House Watch Program is designed to provide peace of mind to our residents while they are away from home for extended periods of time, whether for vacation, illness, work-related travel, or other circumstances. The Police Department and the community need to work together to prevent break-ins while the owner is away for extended periods of time. If you would like your property added to our House Watch list, contact us at 810.653.4196.

It is recommended that the homeowner follow these simple steps in order to better safeguard their home:

• Cancel your newspaper
• Put a hold on all mail (forms may be obtained at the United States Postal Service Offices)
• Ask a neighbor to collect leaflets left on the door
• Ask a neighbor to bring in trash cans from the roadway
• Possibly arrange for the grass/lawn to be mowed in your absence
• Possibly arrange for snow removal (driveway/sidewalks) from the premises in your absence
• Leave emergency numbers with the people chosen to watch your residence
• Remove messages on the home answering machine stating that you will be away
• Secure doors, windows, points of entry for animals, and turn off the garage door opener
• Never leave a key outside, under a mat or “fake rock,” or under a flower pot
• Ask a neighbor to park their vehicle in your driveway to make it look like the house is occupied
• Set automatic timers to turn on and off lights in the evening around the same time you would normally be in the home
