In Honor of Veterans

The Overland Park Police Department’s Honor Guard will present “The Colors” at Village Shalom today at 10:30 a.m. The Pledge of Allegiance will be recited and the National Anthem will be sung. We are all indebted to our past, present and future military personnel for their sacrifices and for maintaining our country’s freedom.

Cold Weather, Car Warm Ups and Auto Thieves

With the predicted approach of much cooler weather this Friday and over the weekend, the opportunity for car thieves to target cars and trucks left running to “warm up” increases. Each year our officers take “warm up” stolen auto reports from driveways, convenience stores and other locations throughout Overland Park It is illegal in this city to leave any vehicle unattended without first stopping the engine, locking the ignition, and removing the key from the ignition. The only exception is a vehicle equipped with a remote starter system.
