Vacation Watch


The Orange Police Department provides a free vacation watch service to residents of the City of Orange. When you are away from home for an extended period of time, you can request a vacation watch. When your home is listed with the Orange Police for a vacation watch, patrol officers periodically stop and check on your home. Officers may walk around your home to see if there has been any forced entry or damage. Although this is not a guarantee that your home will not be damaged or burglarized, it gives you some added protection. We encourage you to make arrangements with a family member, friend, or neighbor to also check on your home.

To request a vacation watch Please call The Orange Police Department.Orange TX Police placeholder
