Does the police department offer a Vacation Watch for residents?

Yes. 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. 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.

We encourage you to complete the form before the day you travel. If we have any questions or concerns about the information you provided we can attempt to contact you before you leave. The Flower Mound Police Department will attempt to patrol this location at least once in a 24 hour period and a routine foot patrol may be conducted. Level of service is dependent upon your answers to the questions on the Vacation Watch Request Form and our level of other police activity at the time of the patrol. A Vacation Watch shall last no longer than 30 days and shall only be permitted to be repeated on the same dwelling after a 30 day lapse between Vacation Watches.  Vacation Watches can only be requested on single family dwellings.
