Connect with your Raymore police officers
To promote neighborhood involvement in crime prevention and further enhance community partnerships, the Raymore Police Department will again host the Community Against Crime event on Saturday, Sept. 22 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the Raymore Festival in the Park at Memorial Park.
The event aims to educate citizens about the services provided by the Police Department, as well as teach residents and business owners what they can do to help promote a safer community. The event will feature representatives from many different local law enforcement agencies, first responders and other public services. Each agency will have its own displays and educational information highlighting how you can help better do your part to prevent crime. Please show your support by attending the Community Against Crime event with other residents of the community, community leaders, and first responders including the Raymore Police Department and other local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.
“I’m proud to live and work in the great community of Raymore and I believe that our police officers can only accomplish their critical mission of keeping our community safe with the support and assistance of our citizens,” Raymore Police Chief Jan Zimmerman said. “It’s a great opportunity to meet the men and women that serve our community every day, so mark your calendars and make plans to attend.”
Help prevent crime in your neighborhood
- Good neighbors make safer communities — take the time to get to know them!
- Lock your doors. Many criminals take advantage of easy targets and many break-ins are due to unlocked cars and homes, so always lock your doors to prevent being the victim of a "crime of opportunity."
- Don't leave valuables in your car or unsecured in your house; it's an open invitation for thieves to steal.
- Keep exterior lights on overnight or consider installing motion detector-type flood lights. Criminals prefer dimly lit areas.
- Set up a Neighborhood Watch Program in your neighborhood (or find out if your subdivision already has one) by contacting Capt. Jim Wilson at 816-331-0530 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- When going out of town, notify a neighbor and have your mail and newspaper deliveries stopped.
- Sign up for the House Watch Program. Raymore police will provide extra patrol of homes when residents are away for an extended period of time. Learn more and download the Raymore House Watch Request Form at www.raymore.com/police.
