It is wise to inform the nearby police station also when you are going our by locking the house for a camp and they may have a watch on the house if you inform them in advance. You should not keep the almirah keys and locker key in a place where it is easily traceable to others. It should be kept in a very remote and secret place so that no one can easily approach that.

With my experience, I would suggest that we should be cautious not only when we go out for a long vacation but also for errands like picking children from school or going for regular walks etc too.
Let me share this experience so that people become more alert. A few years back, I regularly went to pick up my kids from a school that was barely one kilometer. This was a regular thing for me. It would take about 20 to 25 minutes for me to return. Someone has been observing this, maybe a maid or a pressman. I reached home one day and found my door open and the whole house ransacked in a matter of 25 minutes. Be observant each time you move out whether there is someone watching you.
Today technology has advanced and CCTVs are a boon but still, it would be better to be careful.
When you are planning to go on a long holiday or vacations, it is better to inform the neighbours and also the relatives to have an eye on the house. In Hyderabad, there is an arrangement with police on night duty to have the vigil and guard the house in the owner's absence and the police will charge the user charges for the services rendered. Nevertheless, we should not keep the costly things or jewels inside the house when we are out.
