The emergence of 2014 for the City of Overland Park was really quite uneventful as there are no major issues to report.
The police department was prepared with extra officers on the streets and thoroughfares during a DUI Saturation Patrol. There were 25 people stopped from 10:00 PM until 2:00 AM, with 17 citations issued and two arrests for driving under the influence. As a whole, there was only a total of four DUI arrests made during the night. Also, one pedestrian was arrested for being under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
The blog on December 31st stressed the importance of being responsible citizens this year and we believe the results speak for themselves. On behalf of the City of Overland Park and the police department, we'd like to thank you for making good decisions to close out 2013, and wish everyone a safe 2014.
