Vacation House Watch
Welcome to Loudonville Police Department’s Vacation House Watch Program. We offer residents of the Village a Vacation House Watch program to provide added security while you are away. Simply fill out the one page form advising of your trip dates and other basic information, and Officers will check your house while you are away to ensure it is safe and secure. Even if you have a residential alarm system, it is to your benefit to use this FREE service.
To start your house watch, simply fill out the form attached to this website and bring it in to the station. While you are away, it is important to take a few precautions. The following are some tips on keeping your home safe while you are away:
Stop mail and newspaper delivery, or have a trusted friend/neighbor/relative pick it up daily.
If you will be away for an extended period of time, find someone to mow your lawn.
Use timers for lights, televisions, and radios.
Disable and lock your garage doors from the inside.
Have a trusted friend/neighbor/relative stop by every few days to make sure the house looks as if someone is still there. Have them water plants/grass, mow, open and close curtains, etc to make the house looked “lived in”.
Business Emergency Contact Information
If you are a business owner within the Village of Loudonville, we strongly encourage you to fill out a Business Emergency Information Form. This information is used to contact key holders in the event of an after-hours emergency at your business such as an alarm drop, open door, etc. Simply fill out the form attached below with the names and phone numbers of representatives you would like to be notified in this type of situation. We update this information on an annual basis. When the form is completed please drop it off at the station or you may email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
