Vacant House Check Program.
 Vacation checklist.
  • Make your home look as lived-in as possible while you're away.
  • Let your neighbors and the Pelham Police know. You can fill out a Vacant House Check form and drop it off at the police station. (see below for more info).
  • Give a spare key to a neighbor you trust and give them an emergency telephone number to reach you.
  • Arrange to have your mail and newspapers either stopped or picked up daily.
  • Have someone mow your yard or rake the leaves so your house looks lived-in.
  • Use automatic timers to turn on a radio, television and lights at different times to hide the fact you are not home.
  • Turn down the ringer on the telephone. An unanswered telephone is a dead give-away.
  • Be sure you don't announce your absence on your answering machine message.
  • Leave your blinds like you normally would if you were home. Only close them all the way if that is what you would normally do.
  • Be sure to close and lock the garage as well as any storage sheds, gates, etc.
  • Engrave all your valuables with your driver's license number. If possible, videotape the contents of your home. Be sure to keep the video and the list of valuables in a safety deposit box.
  • Ask your neighbor to occasionally park in your driveway. If you are leaving a vehicle parked outside, have the neighbor move it periodically so it looks as though you are home.
