CENTERVILLE, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - Centerville Police is launching a new initiative called operation "Home Shield," to assist families of Centerville residents who are in the military.
Police say the program is voluntary and will assist families of military members who live in Centerville and are deployed.
The military member can sign up with Centerville Police for "Home Shield" and and while the military member is deployed, Centerville officers will "keep a watchful eye on their loved ones and the home that they leave behind," police said in a statement.
Police say they're working with the Family Readiness Squadron at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and other armed services. Police say the offer will be extended to service members who have pending deployment orders. "This valuable program will give our heroes at the tip of the spear, the peace of mind to know that the men and woman of the Centerville Police Department are watching over their most precious belongings."
