If you are going out of town for an extended period, the Woodbury Police Department recommends asking family, a friend or neighbor to keep an eye on your home while you're away. Make sure you've stopped delivery of your newspapers and mail or have them brought them in so they do not visibly pile up while you're gone.
Having someone open and close curtains and setting your light on a timer also makes your home look more lived in. Make sure someone removes snow or mows the lawn, as the season dictates.
If you are going to be gone longer than a week and do not have someone to check on your home, Community Service Officers from the Woodbury Police Department will make periodic checks of the exterior of your home while you are out of town.
Request Periodic Checks
To request these services, please complete a Citizen Service Request or call the Police Department. You will be asked to provide your:
Dates you will be gone
Keyholder name, address and phone number
A phone number where you can be reached while you are gone
