Please remember to update Harris County Precinct 3 of any changes such as additional people coming to your residence or changes in date of departure or return.

Tips for the home while you’re away:

  • Inform the alarm company of your departure and make Harris County Precinct 3 the first contact while you are away from home, as this will save valuable time in getting law enforcement to your residence.
  • Have lights on timers, as having lights on around the clock is a sign no one is home.
  • Leave a parked car in the driveway with no valuables inside.
  • Make arrangements for your pets whether it be someone coming to your home to walk and feed them, a boarding facility, or having them stay with a trusted family member or friend. Make sure your pet’s information such as ID tags and collars, microchips are up to date and give a list of emergency contact information about your pet such as preferred veterinarian, updated shot records, and other medical information with the authorized person(s) watching your pet.
  • Finding a trusted person to house sit is one of the best ways to avoid your home looking empty.
  • Find an emergency contact that can be called in case you cannot be reached.
