Crime Prevention Month events
October is Crime Prevention Month. The Kansas City Police Department (KCPD) has made a list of some upcoming citywide crime prevention topics and events that you may find of interest.
Oct. 22, 2016 – National Prescription Drug Take Back event, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Shoal Creek Patrol Division Lobby (6801 NE Pleasant Valley Rd.)
This is a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.
Oct. 31, 2016 – Safe Trick-or-Treat Event, 5 – 9 p.m. at The Grove/Celebration Station (Zona Rosa- Barry & I-29). The Zona Rosa Community Foundation welcomes a Safe Trick or Treat Event to Zona Rosa, in a partnership with the Northland Coalition and the KCPD. Thanks to their efforts, Northlanders will have a fun, safe and free opportunity to enjoy this Halloween!
Remember during Crime Prevention Month (and every month): See something, say something. KCPD also offers crime prevention brochures that you can download.
