Animal Control Unit Provides Safety Education

Public Safety when dealing with animals is a top priority for the Overland Park Police. As part of our efforts to provide animal safety education in the community, Animal Control Officers routinely attend City events and respond to invitations to speak at local schools. The programs address topics such as recognizing animal communication, dog bite prevention, safe animal handling and pet care tips. Anyone interested in hosting an animal safety program, may contact Animal Control Supervisor Eric Thompson at 913-895-6279.
