The League City Police Department Volunteers In Policing (VIP) Program now offers free house checks as a service to League City residents headed out of town. Checks by members of the VIP Program will supplement, not replace, normal residential patrols by League City police officers. The Vacation House Check service is offered as a courtesy to residents absent from their homes a minimum of three days but not more than fourteen days. Homeowners are asked to submit a form online to the Department at least one week prior to departure. Volunteers will utilize the information provided to visually inspect the home while on patrol in the VIP car. If any suspicious activity is observed, a patrol officer would be called to the residence for further investigation. “Our Vacation House Check service is just one more way we look out for members of our community,” stated Officer Todd Young, VIP Coordinator for the Department.
