Homeowners print and complete a Vacation Home Watch Application, which allows the department to collect necessary information so the patrol officers may know the circumstances at the residence. The application should then be delivered in person by the homeowner to the Slaton Police Department.
While the homeowner is away, a patrol officer will make a check of the residence at least two times per day until the homeowner returns. During the check, the officer will walk around the residence to make sure that the home is secure and other things seem to be in place.
If an emergency arises, the homeowner or emergency contact person listed on the application will be notified immediately.
Homeowners contact the Police Department upon their return home to advise the department to close out the application.
