TAMPA, Fla. - It’s the holiday season, which means many will travel to be with their loved ones - leaving their homes unoccupied.
Homeowners may worry an unwanted guest will enter their home, which is why Tampa police has promoted its free Vacation Watch program where an officer will check a home while its owners are away.
“It's just a tool for travelers to notify law enforcement when they’re going to be out of town so an officer can keep an eye on eye for their home,” department spokesperson Janelle McGregor said.
