Raymore Chief of Police Jan Zimmerman began her career in law enforcement in 1979 as a dispatcher with the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department. She attended the Police Academy at Kansas City and was sworn in as a police officer in January 1982. She rose through the ranks in Kansas City, from sergeant in 1987 to captain in 1994 and ultimately major in 2000, which was her rank when she retired. She held assignments at the Center, Metro, East and Shoal Creek Patrol Divisions, Chief’s Office, Human Resources, Narcotics and Vice, Financial Services, Information Technology and the Training Academy. She came to the Raymore Police Department in April 2012. Chief Zimmerman has a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Park University. She is a proud alumnus of the FBI National Academy in Quantico and was the chair of the Conference Committee when the association held its national training event in Kansas City in 2004. Throughout her law enforcement career, Chief Zimmerman has been afforded many opportunities; however, her proudest accomplishment is her family – husband Major David Zimmerman of the KCPD, daughters Jackie and Britt, and granddaughters Elise and Michele.
