The House Check Program is a service available to all residents leaving the area for more than seven days. Our patrol drivers will inspect the exterior only of the home on foot, three times a week. They will check for broken windows, any doors/windows that are open or unlocked and any packages/flyers/papers that were left at the front door. The cost for this program is $6.42 a week. You can sign up for this program at the Customer Service Office located at 984 Old Mill Run in Lake Sumter Landing or the Customer Service Satellite Office at 4856 South Morse Boulevard.

Resident Out of Area Program

The Resident Out of Area Program is a free service for residents that will be leaving the area for more than seven days. In the event of a natural disaster, Community Watch will notify the homeowner of any damage that is noticed. This allows emergency personnel to concentrate evacuation efforts on occupied homes. Again, there is no charge for this service. Community Watch is always trying to provide a safe community for The Villages residents by keeping a watchful eye around the clock. If you are interested in this program, you can sign up over the phone by calling the District Customer Service Center at 352-753-4508.

Adult Watch Program

The Adult Watch Program is a service provided to residents who live alone, or have a partner that needs someone to call them for a well-being check. Residents choose the time of the call, as well as how many calls a week they would like. The Community Watch Communications Center will call, if there is no answer, they wait 5 minutes and call again. If still no answer, dispatch will send out a patrol driver to check on the resident. At the same time local hospitals will be checked to see if the resident has been admitted. If not a patient, and if the patrol driver is not able to locate the resident. Dispatch will contact key holders or friends listed, to see if they know where the resident is. If not, The Villages Public Safety Department and/or law enforcement, will be notified. To sign up, please visit the Customer Service Office at 984 Old Mill Run in Lake Sumter Landing or the Customer Service Satellite Office at 4856 South Morse Boulevard. There is no fee for this service. If you’d like to fill out the Registration Form prior to your visit, you can download it from the following link — Adult Watch Program Application
