From the Pleasanton Police Department Nixle Alerts:
BURGLARY PREVENTION TIP: “Vacation Patrol Check”
The Pleasanton Police Department offers Vacation Patrol Checks for all city residents. We have a dedicated group of patrol volunteers, who are more than happy to check on your residence or... business while you are away on vacation.
To request the patrol check, call us at 931-5100. Requests must be received 3 days prior to your trip.
Vacation checks are not to be used as a substitute for security measures. You will still need to arrange to have mail and newspapers picked-up by a neighbor or trusted friend, so they do not accumulate and alert burglars of your absence. Volunteers will not go into backyards. Checks are front yard perimeter checks only and there is no guarantee that vacation checks will be done daily.
