[ARCHIVED] Going on vacation? Get a free vacation home check for safety!

Police Volunteers on Vacation Home Check

If you are going on vacation and want to have your home inspected for safety while you are gone….. call us!

The Seniors on Patrol, trained volunteers from the Eugene Police Department, will perform a thorough inspection of your property while you are away on vacation. Vacation checks entail a visual exterior check of your home and outbuildings. As well as ensure that vehicles, gates, lighting and the general security of the home is intact and in accordance with the request. Whenever a vacation check reveals something suspicious, volunteers are trained to back out of the immediate area and request a patrol officer be dispatched to investigate further. 


Vacation checks will be performed, as staffing allows, with the goal of checking the home one to two times each week.


Program Guidelines: 

  • For City of Eugene residents only (the property must be in the incorporated area of Eugene).
  • For vacations of a minimum 5 full days and a maximum of 45 days.
  • For private residential properties only. Business locations, vacant properties, homes for sale and homes with a house sitter or other guest(s) staying in them are not eligible for vacation checks.
  • Applications must be submitted at least one week before your departure. If you submit your application online, you will receive a confirmation that the application has been received and processed. Telephone requests for vacation checks cannot be accepted.
