Police remind homeowners to protect your home anytime
Authorities are reminding homeowners about a free house check program offered by the Merrimack Police Department for citizens that may be leaving their home unattended while on vacation or traveling for Christmas.
All local residents are urged to register for the house check service by calling the department’s communication center and completing a registration form over the phone.
If something seems out of place, the homeowner or an emergency contact person will be notified, according to Kelleher. Police then make a record of all the checks completed on the house so that homeowners will have proper documentation.
It takes a quick phone call to register, according to Kelleher, explaining homeowners can wait until the day they leave to sign up. To register for the house check program, call 424-3774 and select zero to be connected with the communication center. Police are also reminding residents who may have ordered online gift merchandise to plan in advance for any packages that may be delivered. Anyone who is expecting a package by mail who may not be home at the time of delivery should plan to have a trustworthy neighbor pick up the package when it is delivered.
Kelleher said there have already been reports of unattended packages being stolen this month in Merrimack.
