Police summer internship
Ride along with a police officer, train with the SWAT, observe traffic officers, see what it takes to be a detective and learn so much more being an intern in the Overland Park Police Department. The department is offering a summer internship for up to five college students. Apply by March 1.
Our first and highest priority is the safety and welfare of the citizens of Overland Park, and the men and women who protect everyone.
The Police Department is a premier operation with high ethical standards. The city has one of the lowest crime rates for Overland Park’s size.
There are 302 full-time employees and 18.5 full-time equivalent employees. Of the 302 employees, 250 are commissioned personnel.
There are four major divisions: Patrol, Patrol Support, Support Services and Investigations. The department also provides special services and community programs, which include fingerprinting, seatbelt safety, reporting illegal internet activity, school resource officers, school crossing guards, school zone safety, Explorers Program, and Citizens Police Academy.
Each year the department updates its Annual Report, which is a snapshot of the department's accomplishments, crime trends, statistics, and other departmental activities.
We operate professionally, responsibly and with accountability from four police stations; however, walk-in reports are only taken at the W. Jack Sanders Justice Center:
- W. Jack Sanders Justice Center, 12400 Foster St.
- Myron E. Scafe Building, 8500 Antioch Dr.
- Tomahawk Ridge Community Center, 11902 Lowell
- Westgate, 11900 Westgate Street
