KETTERING — Lyn Grant has gotten comfortable during the nearly 40 years she has lived in Kettering.
But she's not naive enough to allow her comfort to lull her into unrealistic feelings of safety.
"I've notice the neighborhood changing a little bit," Grant told News Center 7's Lauren Clark on Monday evening. "We had a car stolen once."
To keep tabs on her neighborhood and its surroundings, Grant said she'll probably make use of a new online crime-mapping tool the police department is offering in partnership with LexisNexis Risk Solutions "to be aware, to be on the lookout."
The tool, Community Crime Map, makes information easily available for Grant and her neighbors who want to monitor crime.
According to Kettering police officials, Grant and people like her inspired the department to partner with LexisNexis to create the crime-mapping tool.

MIAMI VALLEY — Spring will officially arrive at 12:15 p.m. on Tuesday, but someone forgot to tell Mother Nature. A winter storm is taking aim on the Miami Valley and will bring a mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow to the region over the next 48 hours.
RELATED: Winter Weather Advisory in effect
Precipitation is expected to develop early Tuesday morning across the far southern Miami Valley and spread northward toward I-70 by daybreak. Much of the precipitation will fall as rain, but as temperatures drop toward daybreak, a band of freezing rain is possible.
The morning commute may not be too bad, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Eric Elwell said.
"The last few days of mild temperatures has helped push road surface temperatures well above freezing. That means that main roads should just be wet early Tuesday," he said. "However, elevated surfaces like cars, bridges and decks could become slippery."
But the wintry weather won't be over yet.
A Winter Weather Advisory will go into effect as of 8 p.m. Tuesday and continue until 8 p.m. Wednesday. A break in the precipitation is expected midday Tuesday before returning in the evening. As temperatures drop after sunset, snow will become the primary form of precipitation and it will increase in coverage and intensity Tuesday night, Elwell.
"Snowfall amounts will generally range from 2 to 4 inches by mid-morning Wednesday," Elwell said. "But isolated higher amounts are possible.
This is something we'll have to watch closely as new model data comes in."
