CHICO, Calif. - Local volunteers for one Northern California police department are offering their services to the community this holiday season.
The Covid-19 has significantly impacted how often we travel. But if you live in Chico and want someone to look after your home while you are out of town during the holidays, there is a local agency willing to help.
The Chico Police Volunteers in Police Service is offering to check in on homes while people are out on vacation. The goal of the program is to provide a monitoring service for the community. But organizers remind people it is not a guarantee.
A Vacation Watch consists of physical checks of a home on day patrols and visual checks on weekend night patrols while the owner or resident is on vacation.
The program is free, Click here to request house checks from police volunteers during the holiday season.
