Police Department
Overview
The Police Department in Merriam, Kansas dates back to 1951, just one year after the City of Merriam was formed. Over the next decade, the department experienced several changes that led to the department that you see today including new hires, new police cars, new equipment, and cooperation with the Johnson County Sheriff's department.

Message from the Chief
Welcome to the Merriam Police Department Web page!
 
Thank you for taking the time to look at our web page. Community policing is the philosophy of the Merriam Police Department, but what does that mean to you. It means that the police department is here for you and you are here for the police department. The police department is here to help you keep your neighborhood safe, but we need your help. There is no way for an officer to see everything, so call us when you see something that seems wrong for your neighborhood. We will be happy to check on the problem and see if we can be of any assistance.
 
If you are looking for ways to get involved with the Merriam Police Department we offer an annual Citizens Police Academy. The Academy gives the officers of the Merriam Police Department a chance to show you what they do and how much they enjoy their jobs. The Academy meets once a week during the fall each year. Sign up online to experience what an officer of the Merriam Police Department does to “protect and serve.”

If you are concerned about crime in your neighborhood, but don’t know how to you can keep up with what is going on. We have a crime mapping section that allows you to map the crimes reported to the Merriam Police Department.
If you were unlucky enough to be involved in a traffic accident investigated by the Merriam Police Department and want a copy of your report you may obtain it from the Police Reports section.
We hope that you find the information we provide useful and our format easy to navigate. If you have suggestions on how to make our web page better please let me know.
