VACANT HOUSE PROGRAM: For those who may be taking winter break vacations 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. Email Mayor Tom Grady. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
