Barrington Hills Police Department

House Watch

Planning your next vacation or business trip?

One important step in that process should be to notify the police department that you will be away from home by requesting a house watch. Doing so alerts patrol officers to your home’s unoccupied status so that they may conduct periodic checks of the perimeter and verify that there is nothing unusual occurring on or about your premises. Please note that checks are performed as manpower, call volume, and time constraints permit. This program is meant to enhance existing security measures you should have in place, such as an alarm system, and it in no way should be your only line of defense while away.

House watch requests may be submitted via the Department’s secure web portal (provided by Frontline Public Safety Solutions) by navigating to or by clicking the below image.  After clicking SUBMIT on the entry page, you should see a confirmation window indicating that the watch request was successfully added, and also receive an email from confirming receipt of your request. If you fail to receive either of these confirmations, please contact the Department for additional assistance.
