Gunfire Leaves House Shot, No Injuries At about 8:34 PM Monday (February 19, 2018) Raytown Police Officers were called to a residence in the 5800 block of Harvard regarding a house that had been shot. The incident stemmed from a disagreement inside the house about money being owed, between an adult male resident and an adult female visitor, who knew each other. The female threatened the male with a gun and the male was able to take the gun from the female. The female ran outside, entered a vehicle that was waiting for her, and started to drive away. Unknown occupants of the vehicle began to fire shots, striking the residence multiple times. The male resident fired back at the vehicle as it left the area. There were three other adults inside the residence when the shooting occurred and one 11-year-old child. No injuries were reported and there was no sign that anyone in the fleeing vehicle was injured. No suspects are in custody. The incident is being investigated and anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477). Report 18-0516

Raytown Police Announce Online Reporting System This afternoon, Monday, February 12, 2018, Raytown Police launched its Online Police Reporting system, providing a convenient option to report minor crimes. Online reporting is offered as a service to our citizens and business community and its use is completely voluntary. The online reporting portal can be found at http://www.raytownpolice.org/online-reporting. This web-based reporting system will allow the public to file certain incident types (stealing, property damage, identity theft, harassment, forgery and fraudulent use of a credit card, as well as add additional information to a report such as a list of property stolen or damaged) over the internet, at their convenience. For all crime types, the following criteria must apply: 1. The incident must NOT be an emergency. 2. The incident must NOT be occurring right now. 3. There were NO injuries caused by the incident. 4. The incident has NO known suspects. "Known" means you know the person's name or where to find them or have a license plate from the suspect vehicle. 5. There is NO physical evidence to be collected. If you have relevant photos or video, you can upload them to this system. 6. The incident must have occurred within the city limits of Raytown. Any incident that occurs outside the city limits must be reported to that jurisdiction. 7. The information you are providing must be truthful and accurate. 8. You must have a valid email address to submit an online report. The Raytown Police Department expects this internet based reporting service to be popular among citizens who expect an increased use of technology as part of the department’s commitment to service. The service will allow the public to file a report at a time that is best for them. The report will be reviewed by police personnel and, once approved, the victim will receive an email with the report number. The report will transfer to the Raytown Police records management system and receive the same investigation and statistical analysis as if the report had been filed by a police officer. In many cases, reports of this nature are only filed for insurance claims or documentation purposes. This web-based reporting option will also allow officers more time to address community needs which require one or more officer’s presence. Full details about acceptable crime reports and criteria can be found at the Online Police Reporting system portal. Anyone who is unsure if their incident meets the online reporting criteria may call our non-emergency phone number at 816-737-6020 and speak with a dispatcher.

UPDATE: He has been located and is safe.

***Please help us spread the word!! Most scam victims end up losing hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars. This is an opportunity for some victims to recoup that money. Please share with friends and family and not just in Raytown!! Thank you!*** Deadline Approaching for Western Union Scam Victims to Claim Refunds Raytown MO- Raytown Police want everyone to know that the deadline for certain scam victims to claim refunds is rapidly approaching. Anyone that sent money to a scammer through Western Union between January 1, 2004, and January 19, 2017, is urged to submit a claim by the deadline, February 12, 2018. Claims that meet the criteria should be submitted directly to the Federal Trade Commission as soon as possible at http://www.ftc.gov/WU. Raytown Police are working diligently to locate and contact as many of those scam victims as possible to advise them of the refund availability, though over time, addresses and phone numbers change. For that reason, we are broadcasting the refund information to inform not only Raytown scam victims, but all victims of scams that involved Western Union during that time period. Scam victims should not wait to be contacted. Instead, they should submit a claim as soon as possible. Scams often include (from FTC website): Online or internet scams – the victim did not receive the items they tried to buy online Lottery or prize promotion scams – the victim was told that they won a lottery or sweepstakes, but never received the prize Emergency or grandparent scams – the victim sent money to someone pretending to be a relative or friend in urgent need of money Advance-fee loan scams – the victim paid upfront fees but did not get the promised loans Online dating or romance scams – the victim sent money to someone who created a fake profile on a dating or social networking website. Raytown Police ask that this information is widely shared with as many people as possible so that those scam victims may recoup their stolen money, often ranging into the thousands of dollars. Filing a claim is free, so victims should not pay anyone to file a claim on their behalf. No one associated with the claims process will ever call to ask for someone’s bank account or credit card number (from Missouri Attorney General’s website.)

We're hiring! We have open positions for lateral officers, dispatch, and detention. Check out www.raytownpolice.org for more information!
