The Police Department offers a vacation house watch program for Worthington residents. You may contact the department at (614) 885-4463 prior to a vacation or business trip and request that a patrol car make periodic checks of your home while you are away.
Any time that your home will be unoccupied for a period of time, remember to arrange to have music and lights turned on by timers at varying times while you're away. Have grass cut in the summer, snow shoveled in the winter and mail and newspapers picked up or cancelled so that it's not obvious that everyone is away.
Remember, even with the police watching your home, good neighbors are the best defense against criminal activity. Get to know your neighbors, and watch out for each other! For more information about how to organize a block watch for your neighborhood, please call 614-436-8634.
