Community Support

The Community Support Division focused on improving the quality of life for residents of Kansas City, Kan. through community engagement and the proactive and reactive enforcement of laws. By fostering relationships and opening up the lines of communication, we hope to increase the community's trust level that will in turn encourage residents to work cooperatively with us to create safer neighborhoods where we all live, work and play.

The Community Support Division encompasses the following units:

Community Policing

Community policing is a philosophy that promotes the use of partnerships and problem-solving techniques to proactively address conditions that impact the quality of life in our neighborhoods. The KCKPD Community Policing Unit is actively engaged in neighborhoods throughout our City through involvement with established community groups as well as its own initiatives. If you would like to learn about Community Policing programs and services or find the name of your Community Policing officer, please visit their page.

Traffic Unit

Officer Directing TrafficKCKPD's Traffic Support Unit (TSU) operates out of Community Policing and provides support for calls for service and community events; manages crash scenes; enforces seat belt compliance; speeding; towing of vehicles; DUI compliance; and participates in selective enforcement campaigns. The police motorcycle unit also works in traffic safety.

Each year our Traffic Unit responds to an average of 10,500 calls for service, works 700 accidents and writes approximately 15,000 citations. Keeping our roads safe is a priority we take seriously, but we need your help. If you witness a dangerous driver in action, please call 911. If you are aware of an ongoing issue such as drivers who regularly speed through your neighborhood or an intersection where a stop sign is regularly ignored, please reach out to us.

To make that process easy and convenient, we have created an online form that takes just minutes to complete.
