Vacation House Check Request

If you live with City of San Mateo limits and you would like the San Mateo Police Department to conduct routine security checks of your residence while you are away for an extended period of time, please complete a Vacation House Check Request form.


  • For officer and cadet safety, we will not provide a vacation house check if someone is staying on the premises.
  • Vehicles left on City streets in excess of 72 hours are subject to tow.
  • SMPD will make every reasonable attempt to monitor your property during your vacation.  However, circumstances may preclude us from performing this service on any day, any series of days, or perhaps, during the entire tenure of your vacation.
