Prairie Village Police Department News

Have you noticed the new blue lights on the traffic signals at 75th St and Mission and 75th St and Roe? If you are like many Prairie Village residents you have, and you may be wondering what they are. The blue lights are a new traffic safety feature called “confirmation lights”. They were recently installed at these two intersections due to the high number of intersection, and intersection related crashes that occur at these intersections. The confirmation lights allow Police Officers to more safely and efficiently enforce red light violations at intersections. The blue light comes on when the traffic signal turns red and can be seen from any direction. An Officer can then conduct enforcement on red light violations from differing locations, even if they cannot see the light turn red. The goal is to have enforcement that reduces the number of red light violations which will hopefully lead to a reduction in intersection and intersection related crashes. Neighboring cities have used the confirmation lights for some time and Officers report being able to more safely and effectively enforce red light violations. The confirmation lights were purchased using grant funds from the Kansas Department of Transportation’s Special Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP). Please drive safely and help us reduce crashes in the City.

We recently received a visit from Paul and Ruth Laursen , of Lakeville, MN. In July 2016, following the deaths of the 5 Dallas and Bart officers, the couple began the St. Michael Project. The purpose of the project is to visit law enforcement agencies throughout the nation and provide staff and officers with St. Michael medals. All the medals have been blessed by Archbishop Bernard Hebda . So far, they have visited over 240 police agencies and had over 8,000 medals blessed to hand out. Thank you Paul and Ruth, we were pleased to meet you! Check them out on Facebook: The Saint Michael Project or visit their website at www.thesaintmichaelproject.com for more information.
