The Highland Park Department of Public Safety will perform house checks for residents who will be away from home for longer than 3 days. On the first full day following departure, patrol officers will begin performing house checks of the residence. We do our best to conduct the vacation house watches daily, but we cannot guarantee that the call load will always allow this to occur.
If an officer encounters anything that they feel you should be notified of, we will try to contact you through the emergency contact numbers that you provide.
