Kansas City Police Department News

Start your journey to serving and protecting at our next Community Recruitment Fair on March 10!

A big thank you to Maggie Cato, Usborne Book consultant, for donating hundreds of dollars in books and toys for “comfort bags" we give to children coming in with a parent escaping domestic violence. Shelters typically require a family to go to a police station to be transported by officers for safety reasons. There can sometimes be a long wait before an officer is available. One can imagine the fear, stress, and anxiety the experience can be for an adult, let alone a child. It is our hope the comfort bag will ease the anxiety and trauma a child might be feeling and bring some sense of calm and security to the situation. Some books may be put in patrol cars for officers to give away to kids they see out in the community, as well.

***Identified and located. Thank you! PleaseShare: Do you know him? He is a subject of interest in a homicide today at 27th & Indiana. If you have information please call the homicide unit at 816-234-5043 or TIPS 816-474-TIPS (8477).

With the horrible things that have happened in our nation recently, we'd like to remind you that we do provide active shooter training to organizations, schools and businesses. Contact your Community Interaction Officer if you'd like to bring something like this to your workplace or school.

Residents of Metro Patrol Division, come meet your new commanders tomorrow!

We wish a very happy retirement to Meyers and thank him for his seven years of service to our city. He's going back to live with the family who donated him to enjoy the retired life.

In honor of Black History Month, we thought we'd share some of ours. KCPD has had African-American officers since our inception in 1874. A few decades after that, Lafayette Tillman joined the force. His record of service to his city and country was impressive, to say the least. His family did an excellent job of recording his history and maintaining mementos. He joined KCPD in August 1903, and we believe this photo was taken not long afterward. You can read more about him here: http://kchistory.org/content/biography-lafayette-tillman-1859-1914-barber-soldier-and-policeman.

***Located!! Yay!! PleaseShare: Help us locate this missing child. Call 816-234-5136 or 911.

As you may have heard, Facebook has shaken some things up in a way that may make it more difficult to see our posts. If you'd like to be sure you don't miss a post from us (which could be crucial in a critical incident or finding a missing, endangered child), you can select to have Facebook notify you when we post. This video shows how. We only post about once a day, so you won't be bombarded.

We have such great people here in KC! Last week when debris fell in the road at Barry Road and I-29, several people got out to help the officer pick it up! Thanks to the person who shared this with us!
