See It, Say IT See It, Say It are more then just words. When you see something that peaks your attention, something that may not look right or that is not normal say something about it. Call the Police. The Neodesha Police Department operates 24 hours a day. If a citizen is worried about a stranger they see in the neighbor or something strange at a friends or family members house have us come check it out. The Police Department has been working some burglaries and thefts lately but we are hearing from non victims and through Facebook conversations about other people that have had items taken or are missing items that haven't ever called to make a report for the items missing or the possible crime. During our investigations we often come across property that we know is stolen from someone but we have no record of it ever being reported and we can't return it to the proper owner if we don't know who it belongs to. When fully staffed we have 7 officers and that is seven sets of eyes. You as a community have an additional couple two thousand pairs eyes that can help us out if your willing to call. You have many options to contact the Police Department. For non emergencies you can call 620-325-3031. If you have an emergency please call 911. The Neodesha Police Department can also be contacted via Facebook or Nextdoor Neighbor. You can also email us at to report any suspicious activity or people that you have concerns about.

Intergovernmental Affairs Advisory HOW TO HELP DISASTER SURVIVORS IN TEXAS August 29, 2017 The compassion and generosity of the American people is never more evident than during and after a disaster. It is individuals, non-profits, faith- and community-based organizations, private sector partners, and governmental agencies working together that will most effectively and efficiently help survivors cope with the impacts of Tropical Storm Harvey. Please follow a few important guidelines below to ensure your support can be the most helpful for Tropical Storm Harvey disaster survivors. TO DONATE TO RELIEF EFFORTS The most effective way to support disaster survivors in their recovery is to donate money and time to trusted, reputable, voluntary or charitable organizations. Cash donations offer voluntary agencies and faith-based organizations the most flexibility to address urgently developing needs. With cash in hand, these organizations can obtain needed resources nearer to the disaster location. This inflow of cash also pumps money back into the local economy and helps local businesses recover faster. Please do not donate unsolicited goods such as used clothing, miscellaneous household items, medicine, or perishable foodstuffs at this time. When used personal items are donated, the helping agencies must redirect their staff away from providing direct services to survivors in order to sort, package, transport, warehouse, and distribute items that may not meet the needs of disaster survivors. Donate through a trusted organization. At the national level, many voluntary-, faith- and community-based organizations are active in disasters, and are trusted ways to donate to disaster survivors. Individuals, corporations, and volunteers, can learn more about how to help on the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NVOAD) website. In addition to the national members, The Texas Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (Texas VOAD) has a list of vetted disaster relief organizations providing services to survivors. Texas VOAD represents more than three dozen faith-based, community, nonprofit and non-governmental organizations. TO PERSONALLY VOLUNTEER IN THE DISASTER AREAS The State of Texas is asking volunteers to not self-deploy, as unexpectedly showing up to any of the communities that have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey will create an additional burden for first responders. The National VOAD has also noted the situation may not be conducive to volunteers entering the impacted zone and individuals may find themselves turned away by law enforcement. To ensure volunteer safety, as well as the safety of disaster survivors, volunteers should only go into affected areas with a specific volunteer assignment, proper safety gear, and valid identification. At this time, potential volunteers are asked to register with a voluntary or charitable organization of their choice, many of which are already in Texas and supporting survivors on the ground. The National and Texas VOAD websites are offering links to those who wish to register to volunteer with community- and faith-based organizations working in the field. Most importantly, please be patient. Although the need is great, and desire to help strong, it is important to avoid donating material goods or self-deploying to help until communities are safe and public officials and disaster relief organizations have had an opportunity to assess the damage and identify what the specific unmet needs are. Volunteer generosity helps impacted communities heal from the tragic consequences of disasters, but recovery lasts much longer than today. There will be volunteer needs for many months, and years, after the disaster, so sign up now. Tropical Storm Harvey is still dangerous, with the potential to impact additional areas of Texas and Louisiana. As the situation changes, needs may also change in these areas. Continue monitoring traditional and social media channels to learn more. If you have any questions, please contact FEMA’s Intergovernmental Affairs Division at (202) 646-3444 or at

Neodesha Police Department has recently been working thefts from vehicles and storage or abandoned buildings. We have been told that there are other possible similar crimes that have been committed but not reported. If you are a possible victim of one of these crimes and live in the area from 6th Street to 9th Street between Granby and Church Street please contact the Police Department and let us know that what you have missing even if you don't want to report it as a crime or file a report. We also ask that if you see suspicious people on bikes or walking the streets or alleys at night or hear suspicious noises don't hesitate to call and have an officer come check it out because you may be preventing yourself from becoming a victim. Remember if you see is, say it.

School will be starting on August 16th and along with that will come the Police Departments enforcement of the school zones. Violations of seat belt and child restraint laws will be a priority. Kansas law provides all passengers must be seat belted or in child restraints. All seat belt laws are cause for a primary stop of the vehicle. Also a reminder to parents and students who drive with restricted licenses; you may only drive from your residence to and from school and work the most direct route. This does not allow running errands, cruising, picking up friends for school, or going downtown for lunch with their friends unless accompanied by an adult (18 or older) with a valid driver’s license in the front seat. Restricted drivers cannot have any juvenile passengers other than siblings. Anyone convicted of violating their driving restrictions may as a result have a fine and have their driving privileges suspended. Please pay close attention to children crossing the streets in crosswalks and walking to and from busses. We want children on their bikes and skateboards to use the west sidewalk on 8th from Indiana to Fir when going to and from school. Remember you cannot ride skateboards on the street. By having the kids on the west sidewalk it will keep them out of the heavy traffic flow of vehicles during the school rush hours and make for a safer trip to an from school for everyone. Also a reminder to make sure your dogs are tied up or fenced in so that they do not follow children to school.

Upcoming Speed Enforcement Beginning July 21rst thru July 23rd, Neodesha Police Department will join other Law Enforcement agencies in Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska Arkansas, Missouri and Oklahoma to stop what has been an epidemic that often has fatal consequences, “speeding” on our streets and highways. In an effort to change this trend, law enforcement across the six-state area will be extra-vigilant when patrolling around city, rural state and federal highways. As speed increases, the severity of crashes increases, leading to a rise in fatalities and/or serious injuries. Officers are educating drivers and passengers regarding the importance of slowing down, using restraints and not driving while impaired. There should be no surprises when it comes to this enforcement effort. Officers will issue citations to any individual who refuses to obey traffic laws, whether it is for speeding, texting, driving while impaired or failing to buckle up.

Fireworks.... The use of approved consumer fireworks by the public for personal use is prohibited other than from the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. on June 27 through July 3, nor between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 12:00 midnight on July 4, nor 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. on July 5 of each calendar year. Just a reminder that you cannot shoot fireworks within the fire zone of the city which shall be defined as the area running parallel one block north and one block south of Main Street.

Click It or Ticket is on its way Beginning on Monday, May 22, and continuing through Sunday, June 4, travelers can expect increased police presence on Neodesha streets as the Neodesha Police Department joins 160 other law enforcement agencies in aggressively enforcing Kansas occupant restraint and other traffic laws as part of the 2017 Kansas Click It or Ticket campaign. This activity is supported by a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT). Drivers can expect strict enforcement of both the Kansas Safety Belt Use Act and the Kansas Child Passenger Safety Act. These statutes require that all vehicle occupants must be appropriately restrained. Law enforcement officers can stop vehicles and issue tickets when they observe front seat occupants, teens in any seat position, or children under the age of 14, riding without being properly restrained. Occupants, ages 14 and over, are cited individually. In the event that a passenger under the age of 14 is observed to be unrestrained the driver will be cited. The fine for an adult seat belt violation is $10 (no court costs). The fine for a youth (14-17) violation is $60 (no court costs), while the fine for a child (0-13) restraint violation is $60 + a court cost charge. Children under the age of four must be correctly secured in an approved child safety seat. Children, ages four through seven, must be securely belted into an approved booster seat unless taller than 4 feet 9 inches or heavier than 80 pounds, in which case, the booster may be removed and the child belted in without it. Children, ages eight through 13 must be safety-belted. In addition, the act prohibits persons under the age of 14 from riding in any part of a vehicle not intended for carrying passengers, such as a pickup bed. For answers to child safety restraint questions and the location of the nearest safety seat fitting station, or safety seat technician, contact the Kansas Traffic Safety Resource Office at 1-800-416-2522, or write
