This service is provided, free of charge, by the Sheriff's Mature Volunteer Program (MVPs). The MVPs are a group of senior citizen volunteers, sworn by the Sheriff. This group provides assistance to the Sheriff's Office, both in the office and the field. Vacation House Checks is one of the MVP functions.
While you are away from your home for an extended period of time, one week or longer, the MVPs will attempt to check the premises twice weekly, weather permitting, to see that nothing out of normal has occurred.
Please download and fill out the application form (PDF) and return it to the Sheriff's Office. It is important that the application be filled out completely. It is also helpful to schedule an inspection of the property with the MVPs before you leave.
Return completed applications to the Sheriff's Office via email or send it to:
