Have the police keep an eye on your home while you're gone

Travelling for the holidays? Did you know that you can request the police to keep an eye on your home while you're gone? Did you know that it's as easy as filling out a quick form online? Take a minute to put your details on this house watch request form, and law enforcement will know to pay particular attention to your home while on patrol. 

In addition to the house watch request form, you can find many useful online forms on the city's website. You'll find ways to notify the city of everything from nuisance animals to playground maintenance requests. Kudos to the city for harnessing technology for convenient communication!
