Do You Know About This Free City Service?

Away From Home

If you are away from your home for an extended time, the Punta Gorda Police Department can conduct periodic home checks and notify you of any concerns or problems that arise.

The Away from Home Program is an invaluable courtesy service offered by the City of Punta Gorda to its residents. The primary purpose of the Away from Home Program is to offer vacationing, seasonal, and year-round residents the reassurance that if a problem exists at their property such as suspicious activity, utility emergencies, or other emergency conditions, the resident or their designated key holder can be contacted expeditiously.

Members of the Punta Gorda Police Department’s Volunteers on Patrol may also conduct periodic House Checks on your home while you are away and immediately notify you or your designee of any problems or concerns at your residence. Participants can provide contact information for themselves or a key holder which will enable the Police Department to more quickly remedy emergency situations.

It is important to note that the Away from Home Program is not intended, or designed, to replace home security systems or other security services. Rather, it is a courtesy service designed to further protect your home and enhance the Police Department’s ability to rapidly respond to, and remedy, an emergency at the homes of our residents.
