Police Department

Overland Park Police Department is a premier operation with high ethical standards and a record of excellence. Our city has one of the lowest crime rates among similar-sized communities.

The department’s success is directly tied to resident involvement. By establishing key partnerships with residents, we can better understand our neighbors, identify problems in the community and provide solutions for them.
