Community Video Partnership
Do you have security cameras that view public area in the city (sidewalks, streets, parking lots, etc.)? Do you want to help the police catch criminals and keep Merriam safe? Video cameras are one of the best methods for catching criminals in the act. The Community Video Partnership Program invites residents and businesses to work with Merriam Police to create a list of active security cameras across the City.

The Merriam Police Department believes crime prevention is a team effort. We encourage the cooperation of police and the citizens to work together. A neighborhood watch area is a group of citizens working together to help identify specific crime problems in the area in which they live. They can then relay this information to the police for enforcement. If you want to set up a neighborhood watch, contact the Merriam Police Department at (913) 322-5560.
