Welcome to the Central Patrol Division. My name is Shawn Wadle, and I am the new Division Commander at the Central Patrol Station. I have served with the Kansas City Missouri Police Department for 24 years, and I have held a wide variety of assignments during my tenure with the department. I am committed to reducing both violent and non-violent crime in my area of responsibility, including reducing public disorder and improving quality of life issues for all who reside, work or visit the Central Patrol Division area. Additionally, I am committed to continuing excellent customer service to those we serve. The station is located at 1200 E. Linwood Blvd.
The Central Patrol Boundaries are primarily from: The Missouri River south to Brush Creek Blvd., Stateline Road to approximately Wabash Ave. Although the Central Patrol Division is the smallest geographically of the uniform patrol division stations, it contains nearly 73,000 residents, numerous businesses and numerous places of interest for all to enjoy and visit. During the weekdays, the population of the Central Patrol Division nearly triples due to these factors.
The entire staff at the Central Patrol Division would like to welcome you to our division. We continue to strive to make the city a safe place to live, work and enjoy. We pride ourselves on being responsive to your concerns. We also have developed great partnerships with our residential neighborhood associations and with the business associations. The entire staff looks forward to serving you to the best of our abilities.
