Free Property Vacation Check
If your summer plans include vacationing, here’s a reminder to make sure you call the Diamond Bar-Walnut Sheriﬀ ’s Station as part of your pre-travel preparation. Upon request, the Sheriﬀ ’s Station oﬀers free vacation checks that involve a Sheriﬀ ’s deputy or trained Volunteer Patrol member performing a security inspection outside your home during the days you will be away.
The inspection includes checking doors and windows for signs of forced entry and disposing of unsolicited commercial ﬂ yers lying on driveways and porches. To further protect your home while you are away, the Sheriﬀ ’s station suggests postponing delivery or having 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.
Vacation Check requests may be made online at www.Walnut.DiamondBar.lasd.org or in person at the Sheriﬀ ’s Station, located at 21695 Valley Boulevard in Walnut. For more information, call (909) 595-2264.
