House Watch

Planning your next vacation or business trip?

One important step in that process should be to notify the police department that you will be away from home by requesting a house watch. Doing so alerts patrol officers to your home’s unoccupied status so that they may conduct periodic checks of the perimeter and verify that there is nothing unusual occurring on or about your premises. Please note that checks are performed as manpower, call volume, and time constraints permit. This program is meant to enhance existing security measures you should have in place, such as an alarm system, it in no way should be your only line of defense while away.

Please plan ahead and submit your request a minimum of two business days before you leave.  House watch requests may be submitted via the below form.

Your watch will terminate at 11:59PM on the specified End Date. If you return home prior to this date or later determine you will not arrive home until after this date, please contact the Barrington Hills Police Department at the below listed number to cancel or extend your watch. Outside of business hours, please contact the QuadCom dispatch center at (847) 428-8784.
