Exterior House Check

Thieves often target homes of citizens who are on vacation or otherwise gone for an extended period of time. In response to this unique factor, the Kentwood Police Department has implemented a program that provides community members with courtesy exterior home checks.

Contact Volunteer Coordinator Vicki Highland at
(616)-656-6571 to arrange a courtesy exterior house check.
