Citizen’s Police Academy Graduate Practices Crime Prevention Tip Learned During Class
Late one Saturday evening in October, a recent graduate of our Citizen’s Police Academy had a chance to put to use a crime prevention tip she learned from Crime Prevention Officer Bill Koehn.
This event also prompted the citizen to review her own residential security features and is preparing to install a more secure jamb brace to her door. If you are unable to participate in our Citizen’s Police Academy, there is another way to procure crime prevention information to secure your home.
Residential security surveys are free to Overland Park residents. During the residential security survey, Officer Koehn can show a video of common burglary methods and how simple preventive measures can diminish the chances of a crime occurring to you. Many homeowners are amazed and entertained by the presentation but, more importantly, receive valuable education regarding residential safety.
To schedule your residential security survey, please contact Officer Koehn at 913-327-6945 or use “OPCARES” on the city’s website www.opkansas.org.
