West Carrollton is a city in Montgomery County, Ohio, United States. The population was 13,143 at the 2010 census.[3] It is part of the Dayton Metropolitan Statistical Area.

The city of West Carrollton has a Photo Enforcement Program that may send the registered owner of a motor vehicle a Notice of Liability if it detects a speeding or red light running violation. The police department also has a controversial traffic enforcement policy in which officers must write a certain amount of citations per month, or face discipline. This contradicts Police Executive Leadership College (PELC) officials who ascertain that such policies are unethical. Ironically, the West Carrollton Police Department requires supervisors attend PELC.
