Vacation Notifications
Citizens residing in the unincorporated areas of Yuma County can submit a Vacation Notification Form prior to departing the area for an extended period of time (more than 30 days).

Unoccupied for Short Duration
If your home will be unoccupied for a short duration (less than 30 days), you may call the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office at (928) 783-4427 and request an intensive patrol (711) of your home. The patrols are conducted by our Deputies. Keep in mind that these home checks are on a “as time permits basis”. In most cases, a good neighbor keeping an eye on your home is much more effective than any intermittent law enforcement patrol.
