The City of Kettering partners with Wright State University every two years to conduct a Kettering Resident Satisfaction Survey.  Emails with a link to the online survey went out yesterday from Carol Murray, our partner at Wright State, to a randomly selected group of Kettering residents.  If you received an email it is a valid survey and we appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback.

Vacation House Checks

As a crime prevention and community relations service to the community, we provide checks of houses where residents are temporarily out of town on vacation, business trips, etc.  No vacant house checks will be made under this program.  House checks will be made as time permits.
  • Checks will be made during daylight hours only.
  • Checks will be made for vacations lasting between three and thirty days.
  • Residents are asked to notify the police department if they return early.
Three ways to register:
  1. In person between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at the police department
  2. By phone at (937) 296-2584
  3. By submitting your information on the below form.
