The Flower Mound Police Department offers free Vacation Watches as a service to Flower Mound residents. Vacation Watch Request Forms are available in the PD lobby or online. *****NOTE: this form has been updated as of December 2018.***** For your convenience the lobby is equipped with a secure drop box for Vacation Watch Request Forms to be submitted when the police records desk is closed.
During a Vacation Watch, beat officers will attempt to drive by the location within a 24-hour period and may conduct a routine foot patrol around the residence. If another person will be staying at the dwelling in the absence of the resident(s), or the residence has an active alarm system, the level of police response will be adjusted accordingly. This service will be contingent upon things such as the level of other police activity, staffing levels, and other unforeseen circumstances at the time.
