WANT TO SERVE THE COMMUNITY: We have received some interest in starting a reserve officer program. It would be for 21 years old and older. It is a volunteer/ unpaid position. You will take an active role in keeping the community safe. We would put you through basic law enforcement training generally one to two nights a week until completion. You would train with our officers and work events/ calls that require additional manpower. When working you would be a sworn officer with arrest power which is why basic training and field training would be required. I am putting feelers out to see if there is enough interest in the area to justify holding a reserve academy. We are also still looking for volunteers for our August 9th youth day as well. if you have interest in either please email us at onagapolicedept@gmail.com

Our tentative date for our youth day out is going to be August 9th, 2017. Please let us know if you are interested in volunteering for the event or helping with the planning. Applications for volunteers are available at city hall or message me. We are also looking for sponsors to help with supplies. More info to follow as we get presenters lined up.Thank you.

Be on the look out for a young adult male with facial hair wearing a gray hoodie harassing or assaulting young kids in the 400-500 blocks of Lucien and Leonard. We have received two reports of this happening in the early evening hours after school let's out. If you have any information please contact dispatch immediately at 785-457-3353 or 911 if you see this person.

This last week we lost a member of our community. Leon Cline had values to live up to. Many don't know Leon had hired on to the Onaga Police Department but wasn't able to continue after falling ill. Even in the worst of times he wanted to help. I wanted to share my story behind that. Earlier this year before he fell he bought a tractor. While he bought it to play with, when I asked the first thing he said was he was looking forward to helping clear streets or drives when ever help was needed. When he returned home after falling the tractor had been delivered. He was unable to get in it. In September he sent me this photo and said he finally made it. I have lots of fond memories of Leon, a man that would do anything to help and I hope we can all take a lesson from him. I hope we can help someone with no expectation of a return favor. Just do it because it is the right thing to do.

For Immediate Release Beginning Monday, November 21, through Sunday, November 27, Onaga and Havensville Police Departments will join many other police agencies across the state, including the Kansas Highway Patrol, in the Kansas Thanksgiving Traffic Enforcement Campaign. A grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) will underwrite overtime enforcement efforts that specifically aim at removing impaired drivers from our roads and ticketing vehicle occupants who are unrestrained or whose child passengers are unrestrained. In comparison with other holidays, the Thanksgiving holiday period (Wednesday-Sunday) outranks all but New Year’s in average number of crashes in which driver impairment is cited as a factor. Those driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs endanger not only themselves, but also others they share the road with – such as their passengers, other motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians. On average, across Kansas, five persons are killed or injured in alcohol/drug-related crashes each day. And the crashes tend to be more severe. According to KDOT, which tracks all crashes in the state, vehicle occupants in alcohol- or other drug-related crashes are over 2 ½ times more likely to be injured or killed than those involved in crashes where alcohol or other drugs were not a factor. Each week across Kansas, over 250 drivers are arrested for DUI (Driving Under the Influence). A DUI conviction will result in jail time, the suspension or revocation of driver’s license, a fine of $500 to $2,500, participation in an alcohol or other drug treatment program, and the purchase and installation of an ignition interlock device in the offender’s vehicle. This device requires the offender to blow into a device that measures blood alcohol concentration prior to starting the car. Also responsible for needless death and maiming is the failure by many teens and adults to simply buckle up, or to properly buckle up child passengers. Twice as many Kansans who die from a crash are unrestrained as are restrained. Even worse is the fact that injuries suffered by those who are unbuckled are likely to be much more severe and disabling than injuries suffered by those who are buckled in. This applies regardless of speed, and whether the occurrence is on a city street, a county road, or a highway. Keep in mind that if you are going to be drinking – any amount at all– don’t even consider driving home. Arrange to ride with a non-drinking acquaintance. Don’t let pride or concerns for your convenience endanger your life and the lives of innocent others. Drivers, always wear your seat belt and don’t move the vehicle until each person riding with you is buckled in. This is your best defense against death and injury, it’s their best defense, and it’s the law. You will live with the consequences – good or bad – the rest of your life. By always following these simple rules, you will preserve life – maybe your life – and certainly your cash.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Please speak with all grandparents. Phone scams are on the rise. A common one is where someone claims to be their grand kid and needs money to get out of jail. I do not want anyone to lose more money to one of these scams so please educate everyone. If you believe a family member is in jail and they are asking you to wire money please contact Law Enforcement to verify. These people are very convincing and the chances of recovering the money are very small.

Is there anyone else that wanted to sign up kids for the day camp. The deadline is here. Please let me know if we missed anyone. Thanks

The deadline is about here. If your interested please let me know. I am also still needing some volunteers to help. Thank you.

The deadline is quickly approaching. Please if you are interested in sending your kids let us know. We can bring you an application. We need to plan for supplies. Also if we haven't had enough by the end of this week we will open it up to other school districts. Thanks

To anyone interested we are taking signups for the youth camp. I would like to fill it with Onaga school district kids however we will open to other districts in the county if we are falling short. Please check it out if your interested. We will have hands on training opportunities along with some fun games to help our learning. Deadline is only a couple weeks away to sign up.

We are going to host our first day camp for ages 8-14. Flyer is attached. We are also looking for volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering contact me at onagapolicedept@gmail.com or grab an application from city hall. Thanks
