House Watch
The City of Auburn offers a house watch program intended for residents that will be away for an extended period of time. Officers will check the registered home during the resident's absence. If there is any event that the officer believes needs attention they will contact the resident or designated keyholder for further investigation. 

To sign up for this program submit the Police House Watch Request Form to City Hall. 

**A new form will need to be filed for each time period being covered.**





1. Lock your vehicles and put valuables out of sight, preferably in the trunk or bring them into the house at night. Thieves will break into any vehicle if they think there is something of value to be stolen. Thieves know that briefcases may contain checkbooks, wallets, watches, calculators, and other small electronics. Similarly, they are aware that many gym bags contain jewelry, keys, cash, and personal stereos, etc.

2. After removing valuables from view, lock your car doors. This will discourage some of the more casual thieves. It will deter those who would go into an unlocked car to look for a trunk or hood release button in order to steal auto parts or the contents of the trunk.

3. Report suspicious activity while it’s happening. This could save you or your neighbor from being victimized. Call 911 and stay on the line if you see or hear something that seems unusual or suspicious. Try to get a description of the suspects and their vehicle but don’t confront suspects. Don’t think you are bothering the police by calling them to report suspicious activity. It’s their job to detect and apprehend criminals and they need your help because they can’t be in everyone’s neighborhood 24 hours a day.
