Gang Unit

The Olathe Gang Unit was revitalized in the summer of 2005. Officers assigned to this special unit come from a variety of disciplines within the Olathe Police Department and include School Resource Officers, Patrol Officers, and Detectives. The unit is currently staffed with approximately 14 officers and 2 supervisors.

Gang Unit personnel provide Gang Awareness and Prevention training to the community and students and staff in the Olathe School District. The Olathe Police Department Gang Unit also offers assistance to outside agencies and is involved in coordinated efforts within the Kansas City Metropolitan area to include a Metro Gang Task Force. The Olathe Gang Unit is actively involved in the Kansas Gang Investigators Association which is a support organization that provides training and correspondence between law enforcement agencies.
