BELLBROOK, Ohio (WDTN) – The recent rain might have you itching to get away for a few days, but before you start you vacation one police department is giving homeowners piece of mind
Bellbrook police will are bringing back a program to put traveling minds at ease.
If you’re going on vacation, a quick call to dispatch will have an officer checking up on your home at least once or twice a day.
It’s called the Vacation House Check program.
It’s a service that is returning for people in Bellbrook after being gone for nearly a year.
Last year, the city of Bellbrook voted to phase out their dispatch center and instead use the Greene County Dispatch, a move the city said would save $150,000 a year in tax payer dollars.
This year police officials worked with the communications center to once again provide this service for the Bellbrook residents, a move the department says goes back to their community-oriented policing efforts.
