House Watch Program

The Fort Cavazos House Watch program is a DES initiative aimed at giving Soldiers and family members peace of mind while they are away from their quarters for an extended period of time.  When you place your quarter on the house watch list, that address becomes a security check for patrols assigned to that sector.  A patrol will inspect the exterior of the quarters and identify if any windows or doors are damaged or if anyone has attempted to make entry into the home.  They will also inspect outside storage facilities to ensure they are secure.
