Sheriff’s Dept. offers free vacation checks

FALLBROOK – Going away on a summer vacation? An empty house is a tempting target for burglars. Sign up for free vacation checks with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

The Sheriff’s Department offers free vacation checks year-round. Senior Volunteer Patrol members perform security inspections outside the home Monday through Saturday. They make sure doors, windows, and garages remain locked. They will also hide newspapers and packages in a side fence or backyard area. If anything suspicious is noticed, they will call a deputy for assistance.

Upon returning home, the resident is provided with a welcome home letter detailing the home was checked and any observations made.

To learn more, visit or call the Fallbrook substation at (760) 451-3100.
