HARLAN, Ky. (AP) -- Harlan County police are trying to help residents enjoy their summer vacations by giving them a little extra peace of mind.
WYMT-TV reports the police department has started offering a service in which officers will keep an eye on homes while residents are vacationing.
Sgt. Matt Cope says all people have to do to sign up for the service is fill out a form. Officers will also be able to give out security tips.
Cope says with the service, all officers will know who is out of town so they'll be able to keep a closer watch on empty homes.
He says he hopes the service will cut down on the number of items stolen over the summer.
