Vacation Watch Tips from The Woodlands Township
alt
'Tis the season for holiday excursions away from home! This year, let the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office or Harris County Constable's Office ease your mind about traveling! The Woodlands Township Neighborhood Watch encourages residents to take advantage of the free Vacation Watch program. With the Vacation Watch program, deputies will regularly drive by your home, check doors and windows to ensure that they are secure, and investigate anything on your property that looks suspicious.
 
Sign up for Vacation Watch
Vacation Watch allows law enforcement patrol deputies to check the security of a residence while the homeowner is out of town. Please note: The frequency of home checks is dependent upon call volume in the area. Active calls for service will take precedent.
  • Montgomery County Sheriff's Office - call (936) 442-7797 or complete the online Vacation Watch Request. For more information, please visit their website.
  • Harris County Constable's Office, Precinct 4 - call (281) 376-3472 or complete the online Vacation Watch Request (in dropdown choose Creekside  Woodlands).
