There are two ways to sign up:
- Visit the clerks’ office at the station on the corner of 44th Avenue West and 194th Street Southwest (Veterans Way); they’re open from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. daily.
- Download and complete the application located on the Lynnwood Police Department’s website, then return it by email to [email protected], drop it off at the clerks’ office or return by mail to the police department.
The Volunteers in Public Safety (VIPS) check on all houses in the city limits of Lynnwood that are registered for vacation house checks. The VIPS are trained on the police radio to call an officer if they hear or see anything suspicious.
For questions on the free Vacation House Check program or how to learn more about volunteering with the Lynnwood Police Department call the Lynnwood Police Crime Prevention Section at 425-670-5635.
