Oakley Police Chief Offers Summer Vacation Preparation Tips

With  summer  upon  us,  many  residents  will  be  making  plans  for  their  annual  family  vacations.  As you travel to places far away, there are things you can do to safeguard you home.  By taking some simple steps, you reduce the chances of returning home to the unpleasant experience of discovering you’ve been a victim. Consider the steps to safeguard you home while away: If you have an alarm, be sure it’s in working order and that your emergency contacts with the alarm company are current.  Be sure to teach those contacts how to turn the alarm off and how to reset it!  Most importantly, set the alarm prior to leaving! Be sure to arrange for pickup of your newspaper and mail.  It’s best to have these items picked up by a neighbor or friend rather than stopping service. If you leave a pet behind, be sure they are adequately cared for.  Dogs tend to bark when their owners don’t return home for several days.  This can be very frustrating for your neighbors. Let your neighbors know you will be away, when you will return and how you can be reached in the event of a problem at the house. Contact the Police Department and arrange for a vacation house watch. Technology today allows some folks to monitor their home while away.  Some let your turn lights on and off from a distance via the internet.  If you have such a system, turn different lights on during the evening to make it appear as though somebody is home.  Be sure to share this plan with your neighbors who are watching your house. In reality, your home and belongings are very safe here in Oakley however, by taking these simple steps, you reduce your chances even further of becoming a victim. Chief Chris Thorsen
