Kansas City Kansas Public Schools Police Department (USD500) News

During McKinley Elementary's Latin America celebration, Officer Samuelson had the opportunity to learn with the students how to make Guatemalan Worry Dolls. There are many stories and legends about worry dolls but here is one: "According to the Mayan legend, when worrying keeps a person awake, he or she tells a worry to as many dolls as necessary. Then the worrier places the dolls under his or her pillow. The dolls take over the worrying for the person who then sleeps peacefully through the night. When morning breaks, the person awakens without the worries that the dolls took away during the night."

Officer Corethers at the South Branch Library participated in a class yesterday in fake wound makeup in preparation for Halloween. The kids tried different techniques and then used fake blood to make it realistic. She helped one young patron and then applied one on herself. Undoubtedly this was a good step towards a memorable Halloween approaching quickly!!

Halloween is in a couple of weeks! There are safety measures your kids need to know before they go Trick-Or-Treating. There are other alternative, safe activities, also! Check your local businesses and community groups. We have listed some suggestions at the bottom of the poster. Have a fun and "ghoul" week!

Good morning! Make your week a safe one! Mandatory training not only provides training relevant to the officers’ daily responsibilities but it also gives us the opportunity to be able to assist other staff when necessary. This past week brought Emergency Safety Intervention (ESI) training offered by the Crisis Prevention Institute. This refresher course taught by Melanie French and Jennifer Stephens includes techniques useful for assisting staff with handling students in mental or emotional crisis. Thank you to Melanie and Jennifer for the valuable information they bring us every year!

Our department, district employees and public attendees were able to officially welcome three new officers to KCKPSPD during a swearing in ceremony at the last board meeting. Please welcome Officer J. Samuelson, Officer M. Scheetz and Officer J. Johnson! Pictured left to right: Officer Samuelson, Officer Colaco, Officer Allen, Officer Kinney, Officer Scheetz, Officer Johnson, Chief Horn and Executive Assistant Jamia Warren.

You will see our officers wearing mourning bands in honor of Deputy Robert Kunze III of Sedgwick County, Kansas. Deputy Kunze lost his life in the line of duty yesterday during a suspicious persons call. Please keep his family and the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office in your thoughts.
