VACANT HOUSE PROGRAM: For those who may be taking vacation, don’t forget to utilize the Vacant House Program. Call 610-649-1000 to set it up and fill out a form. The police will come to your home several times during their shift to check perimeter, windows and doors. This is a Lower Merion Township program. Narberth has the same program. Call or email the mayor
When you are on vacation or away from home in excess of 24 hours, you can contact the Lower Merion Police Department at 610-649-1000 to report your home vacant. You will be asked a series of questions which include:
- Your Name
- Your Address
- The dates you will be away
- An Emergency Contact Phone Number
- Whether or not that Emergency Contact person has a key to your home
- Whether or not you have an Alarm System
- If you have lights on timers
- And any other specific instructions you would like the Police to know
Based on this information, the Lower Merion Police Department will assign a patrol officer to check your home in your absence.
When you return, please contact the Police to inform them that you no longer need this service.
