Merriam Police Department News

Week 3: Citizens Police Academy participants yesterday listened to Sgt. Reynolds and Sgt. Walton speak about use of force. Check out this video of our participants training with a stimulator and how they felt about this experience.

Girl Scout Daisy Troop 3074 enjoyed the inner workings of a patrol car while touring our police station with Officer Hannabass.

Week 2 of the Citizen Police Academy tonight. We had presentations by MPO Waller who talked about patrol procedures. Crime Analysis by our analyst Seth Potts, and Taylor Hopkins talked about her duties as a mental health co-responder. Great class!

Congratulations to PO David Vincent on 5 years of service to Merriam PD and SGT. John Walton on 20!! Both were recognized at this evening’s City Council meeting.

Corporal Waters spent this morning handing out medals to Special Olympics Kansas Athletes competing in powerlifting!! He had some assistance from Zach Fulton of the Houston Texans! Special Olympics Kansas City of Merriam, Kansas

As if Friday wasn't awesome enough, we received a giant gift bag this afternoon from Traveling Baskets Thank you so much for the snacks, gift cards and water bottles!! They even have a link on their page to "pay it forward"...

Practice practice practice!! Merriam Officers average over 90 hours of training per year. Over twice as many as required by the State of Kansas. Firearms is one of many areas your Merriam officers train!

Officers Hirsch & Hannabass helped Merriam Parks & Rec welcome the opening night of the "Art From The Heartland" exhibit at the Tim Murphy art gallery.

Tonight was the kick off to our Citizen Police Academy. We had a good turnout and are looking forward to the next nine weeks. Check back weekly to see who gets Tasered......

It was great to see everyone today at IKEA!

Baby it’s cold outside..... Perfect weather to join your Merriam Police Officers for “Coffee With A Cop”. This Wednesday from 10-11:30AM at IKEA. Hope to see you there!

Congratulations to Merriam Park Elementary school. They are the first school in Johnson County to receive a "Health Partnership Clinic!" We attended the ribbon cutting this morning. The clinic, which operates inside the school building, provides on site medical, dental, and behavioral health care for students and families-regardless of an ability to pay. This will be a great addition to a great school!!

Today, MPO Hutchinson and MPO Simmons represented the Merriam Police Department at the funeral of FBI Special Agent Melissa Morrow. Melissa bravely served her country for 23 years with the FBI. She was on an FBI evidence collection team where she worked at the Pentagon crash site for 10 weeks after 9/11 in hazadous and contaminated conditions. As a result, she devloped brain cancer-which ultimately led to her death. Did you know??? 73 law enforcement officers were killed on 9/11, most of which were trying to rescue victims from the twin towers. Since that time there have been twice as many officers and agents that have died (over 150) from 9/11 related duty illness and cancers. Please remember the sacrifice of these brave women and men so they are never forgotten..

Congratulations to Officer Vincent Rock who was promoted to Master Police Officer at this evening’s City Council meeting. His father in law Dennis Horner had the honor of pinning his new badge. Way to go!

Please help us find runaway juvenile Alyssa Bolton, 17 of Merriam. Last seen wearing a white sweatshirt & black leggings. Call Merriam PD at 913-782-0720

A big shout out to Cub Scout pack 3127 who stopped by tonight to tour the station. Who knows- some of them may work for Merriam PD someday...(Hey kids we’re hiring!)

Great turnout this morning at our open house. We are very proud of our remodeled building and were excited to show it off. We even got some more people signed up for our Citizen's Police Academy that begins next month. Interested? Contact Capt. Duvanel at for details or go to the Merriam PD website. We still have a few spots left!

FOLLOW UP: So we thanked Facebook Nation for your help with reuniting some stolen martial arts equipment with the rightful owner (1 hour no less!). Meet Isaac. He was the little boy whose equipment was stolen. Here he is pictured with Det. Castaneda after getting his ninja gear back. Aren’t happy endings great?!?

Being a 24/7 operation makes it difficult for everyone to get together. We do take the time once a year to have a meal together as a group and give out some awards. We just so happened to do that last night....

OK Facebook Nation-Merriam PD is asking for your help. We had a car stolen a couple of weeks ago and when it was found abaondoned, there was a set of children's martial arts gear found inside that did not belong to the car's owner. Were guessing there's a sad little guy out there that had it stolen. Let's use the power of social media to reunite the gear with a child. Please share the post and if you know of anyone who is missing this, have them call Det. Castaneda at 913 322-5562. Thanks!
