    1. Title II Compliance

      In accordance with the requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) of 1990, the Fair Employment & Housing Act (“FEHA”), the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (as amended), Government Code section 11135 and other applicable codes, the City of Modesto (“City”) will not discriminate against individuals on the basis of disability in the City’s services, programs, or activities. For more information, please visit the City of Modesto website.

    2. Whether you’re away from your home on business, or enjoying a well-deserved vacation, the security of your residence while you’re gone is important to you and to us. With a free Vacation House Check, Modesto residents who are away from home between 5 and 30 days, can request for trained Modesto Police Department Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) to periodically patrol your residence looking for anything out of the ordinary. If something appears suspicious, our volunteers will work with police officers to investigate the activity further.

      The Vacation House Check application process is fast and easy. Simply complete the form here at least one week prior to your departure date and remember that the more detailed the information you provide, the easier it will be to determine if something is amiss. The Vacation House Check is not a guaranteed service and the approval of one will depend on availability.
