DISCLAIMER: Requesting a vacation house check does not guarantee that a burglary or other crime will not occur at your residence, and it is only intended to be a request for the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office to check your home periodically, based upon the availability of a deputy. No vacation checks while the homeowner is gone from the home are guaranteed. No additional police response or protection is being guaranteed by requesting a security check, other than normal police services and protection which is provided to the general public.

Consequently, it is recommended that you make every effort to safeguard against losses including securing of high value property, using proper locking devices, alarm systems, etc.
