Home Security Service Provided by the Police during 2021 CNY
All the City/County Police Departments will be providing home security service for foreign residents during the period of upcoming Chinese New Year (Feb. 3 - Feb. 17, 2021).
Any foreign nationals living in Taiwan may request the local police to boost patrols around their residences while travelling away. The foreign residents may apply for this security service by:
1.Calling the police hotline 110.
2.Applying for this service in person at their local police precincts or stations.
In addition, the National Police Agency also advise the foreign nationals the following five tips to keep their home safe while they are away:
1.Make sure you lock every window and the entrance before you leave.
2.Ask your friends, neighbors, or members of neighborhood watch to keep an eye on your house.
3.When your house left empty, turn on the radio in the day time or keep the light on at night. If you can set your radio and lights on a timer to create the illusion of someone home, that will be better.
4.Deposit your small and valuable belongings in banks or hide them in secret places separately.
5.Don't make or socialize status updates on social media. You can always post your vacation photos after you return.
