Basehor Police Department News

Strict seatbelt enforcement to save lives Beginning October 30 through November 3, Basehor Police Department will join other Kansas law enforcement agencies to stop what has been likened to an epidemic in Kansas. In 2016, 44 children ages 0-19 lost their lives due to car crashes in Kansas. Sadly, almost half of those children were not wearing their seat belts. In the health field, they talk about making sure children have received their immunizations to prevent deadly diseases. However, many parents don’t think that wearing a seatbelt properly is the best prevention of serious injury or death in a vehicle. According to the 2017 Kansas observational seatbelt survey, children are much more likely to be buckled up if the driver is wearing their seatbelt. If the driver is buckled, about 98% of the children are restrained. If the driver is not buckled, only about 29% of the observed children were buckled. We want adults to model good driving behaviors for children. Starting October 30 through November 3, law enforcement across Kansas will be extra-vigilant when patrolling around schools. For more than 20 years, officers have educated and warned drivers and passengers regarding the importance of using seatbelts while in their vehicle. There should be no surprises when it comes to this enforcement effort. Officers will issue citations to anyone who does not obey Kansas law. Even one child’s death is unacceptable. Please slow down, especially in school zones, eliminate the distractions, and always buckle up. Sincerely, Lloyd Martley, Chief of Police For the latest data and to see more about Kansas safety belt laws, go to: www.ktsro.org

You Drink. You Drive. You Lose. Be warned that during the period, August 17 through Labor Day, September 4, Basehor Police Department will join 150 other local and state police agencies across the state in a crackdown aimed at removing drunk, drugged, and other dangerous drivers from the roadways. Kansas averages three persons injured every day, and one person killed every three days, in crashes where at least one of the drivers involved is impaired by alcohol and/or another drug. According to KDOT, between 22% and 35% of all crashes with fatalities are attributable to alcohol or drug impairment. You Drink. You Drive. You Lose. Campaign is intended to remind drivers of several things: 1. If you’re going to drink while away from home, do it responsibly by planning ahead and lining up a designated driver before leaving home. 2. Think of a family you know – maybe your own. Now, consider how it would be to wake up every day to the memory of your decision to drive after drinking – a decision which unintentionally brought injury or death to one of them. 3. Even if you appear to be driving well enough to get by, you may still be pulled over for another traffic offences. If this happens and the officer detects alcohol you will be tested. If you fail the testing process you’re looking at a fine of $500-$2,500; up to one year in jail; the suspension of your driver’s license; increased insurance premiums; and the purchase and installation of an ignition interlock device in your car. Add in an attorney’s fees and you may tie up $13,000 or more before all is said and done. Don’t take the chance; it’s not worth it. 4. We are asking all citizens on the roadways – drivers and passengers – to watch for suspicious driving behaviors. Note the location, a description of the suspect vehicle, along with its direction of travel, and call 911 as soon as it’s safe to do so. You may save a life. 5. You can count on this department to vigorously enforce impaired driving and other traffic laws, not just during this campaign, but all year long. 6. Always remember that the best protection against a drunk driver (even when it’s yourself) is the use of seat belts and appropriate child restraints – every trip, every time. Restraints save lives and reduce injury severity. Sincerely, Lloyd Martley, Chief of Police

Starting this upcoming Monday, February 29, 2016 through March 13, 2016 the Basehor Police Department will join other Kansas Law Enforcement agencies to stop what has been an epidemic for the past several years. In 2015, 13 teens lost their lives due to car crashes in Kansas; 40% of those teens were NOT PROPERLY RESTRAINED. In an effort to change this trend, law enforcement agencies across Kansas will be extra-vigilant when patrolling around schools. For more than thirty years, officers have educated and warned passengers and drivers regarding the importance of using restraints while in their vehicles. There should be no surprises when it comes to this enforcement effort. Officers will issue citations to any individual who refuses to obey the traffic laws, whether it is for speeding, texting or failing to buckle up. Chief Lloyd Martley says, “Even one teen death is unacceptable”. Please slow down, put the phone away or turn it off, don't text and drive and always buckle up.

We found this dog around 160th and Garden Parkway today. Anyone know who it belongs to?
