Identity Theft Alert

With tax season upon us, the Olathe Police Department wants to alert you to a type of identity theft that often happens this time of year, tax-related identity theft. This occurs when someone uses your stolen Social Security Number (SSN) to file a tax return claiming a fraudulent refund. Many people don’t realize they are a victim until they file their taxes and are alerted that a return has already been filed. Visit Identity Theft Consumer Information if you think you have been a victim of identity theft.


Community Forum Q & A Results

On January 21st, 2015 the Olathe Citizen’s Police Advisory Council in conjunction with the Olathe Police Department hosted a community forum at the Olathe Community Center.  The forum was open to the public and the event drew approximately 50 citizens who wanted to learn more about the local policing efforts taking place in Olathe. Additional information is published for you at Community Forum Review.


Benchmark Cities Survey

The Olathe Police Department participates in the annual Benchmark Cities Survey along with 29 other police agencies across the country.  Established in 1997 by a group of police chiefs from around the country, the survey compiles a variety of information about the different participating agencies and is utilized as a benchmark to ensure the Olathe Police Department is providing the best services we can to citizens.  For questions about the survey, please contact the Public Information Sergeant at 913-971-7500.
