Are you making out-of-town plans for the holidays?

If you live in unincorporated areas of Harris County, the Harris County Sheriff's Office is providing a service to keep watch over your home while you are away.

To sign up for the "Vacation Watch Program," you have to fill out a form online.

Submit the appropriate form and you're on your way to having a Harris County deputy keep an eye on your home.

Houston Police Department offers a similar free program for residents in the city of Houston.

If you live in Fort Bend County, you can also sign up for vacation/house watch on the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office website.
