Redlands Police offer burglary alert for vacationing residents

September 10, 2013 12:00:00 AM PDT
Redlands Police want to help protect residents' property from thieves with a new vacation program called "While You're Away."

Before heading out, residents can contact police and check out a small tracking device that can be hidden on items of value.

The device is activated once the resident leaves on vacation.

Any movement will set off a signal to both the resident and police.

There is no cost to participate, but police are asking for voluntary donations.
