Diamond Bar: Free Vacation Home Checks

Staff Reports

Diamond BarGoing on vacation this summer? The City of Diamond Bar encourages you to call Diamond-Bar Walnut Sheriff’s Station and add them as part of your pre-travel preparation.

The Sheriff’s Station will be offering free vacation checks for the days you will be out of town, which includes a Sheriff’s Deputy or trained Volunteer Patrol member who will perform a security inspection outside of your home. They will do inspections including: checking the doors and windows for signs of forced entry, and collection and disposing of unsolicited commercial flyers lying on the driveway or porches.

The Sheriff’s Station also suggests other ways to further protect your home while you are away including: postponing the delivery or your mail, have one of your neighbors pick up your mail or newspapers to prevent it from piling up, and installing exterior lights that operate on a dawn-to-dusk, or timer function to create the illusion that you are home.

You may contact the Sheriff’s Station to learn more about this service or request a vacation check by calling (909) 595-2264. You may also go in person by visiting the Sheriff’s Department at 21695 E. Valley Boulevard in Walnut.
