Important City Service Update: Our annual leaf collection service was due to be complete last week, but has been extended through December 21 due to late leaf fall resulting in high volume and impact of ice storm debris.  Thank you for your patience.

We are in our final round of leaf & ice storm debris collection and crews are currently working in District 7. We will then proceed in numerical order to Districts 8, 9, 10, 11 then Districts 1, 2 & 3.  Districts 4,5  & 6 are done for the year, we will not be coming back through before spring.

Residents can visit this page to easily find their leaf district.

If we complete collection in your district and you still need to dispose of leaves you may either place them in your Waste Management toter for collection on your normal pick up day or you can take leaves to our Yard Debris Center on Woodman Center Drive through December 22nd. Yard Debris Center hours are Monday through Friday 3-8 PM and Saturday 9 AM – 3 PM.

Kettering Police Foundation

Our Mission
The Kettering Police Foundation was established to create a way for citizens, organizations and businesses to give back to Ohio’s Finest Community. The Foundation is a police-oriented organization with the sole purpose of recognizing and helping those in need. The Foundation sponsors state-of-the-art training to area police officers, assists citizens with extraordinary situations, as well as awards college scholarships to students studying law enforcement.
Our Purpose
The Kettering Police Department operates under the community-oriented policing philosophy. The belief promotes stronger interaction between police and community. Under this philosophy, officers identify individuals and families in need of monetary assistance who are not eligible to receive help under existing programs.
The Kettering Police Department is sensitive to the needs of those less fortunate and created a foundation with the sole purpose of helping and enhancing the community.
The Kettering Police Foundation serves as a vehicle to accept donations made in honor of the excellent work performed by Kettering Police Department employees. The Foundation enables citizens and organizations to donate monetary gifts in appreciation for the outstanding service, and distributes these funds back to local individuals and families in need.
Based on need and the wishes of contributors, the Foundation provides annual funding for the following:
• radKIDS Program – Young children are taught self defense techniques to help them escape from dangerous strangers;
• Shop with Cops Program – Uniformed officers meet with underprivileged children from Kettering and buy Christmas presents for them and their families;
• Chief John R. Shryock Scholarship Fund – A $1,000 scholarship award was granted to a Kettering resident;
• Miami Valley Crime Stoppers – Funding; and
Kettering Police Foundaiton Annual Report
Our emphasis is to continue finding innovative ways to raise funds for this year in order to fund many of the same programs we did in 2008 and to identify new worthy causes for funding.
The Foundation does not use professional fund raisers, and all contributions that are made go directly to the Foundation.
