Free vacation security checks offered to residents

January 2, 2018

The Cerritos Sheriff's Station/Community Safety Center offers free vacation security checks for residents. While you're away, a deputy or Volunteer on Patrol will check your home for broken windows, open doors or other evidence of suspicious activity.

Residents who wish to take advantage of the service must fill out the vacation security check request form at least five business days before leaving on vacation. The form is available at Under the "Residents" heading, click "Safer Cerritos," then "Crime Prevention" then "Vacation Security Check Request Form." All information on the form must be completed in order for the request to be processed. If it is less than five business days before the start of your vacation, please call (562) 916-1266 to submit a vacation security check request by phone.

Ensure that all doors and windows are locked before leaving for vacation. Notify the Sheriff's Station at (562) 860-0044 if you return before your indicated return date.
