The Kettering Medical Center Protective Services Department provides security for students, faculty, staff, and visitors.  Protective services personnel are on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist in student concerns.  All students and employees can assist in continuing to make the college a safe place by reporting any suspicious activity. The safety of our students is of the utmost importance at Kettering College.
