Community Meeting Room
The Central Patrol Division Station is equipped with a "Community Meeting Room" in its facility.

The facility is equipped with adequate tables and chairs for 40 - 50 persons (removal of tables could allow for a larger capacity). For more information on the community room, or to check on availability, call the division office at 816-759-6327.
Building a Strong Partnership
The members of Central Patrol Division strongly believes that for crime to be controlled and decreased, community involvement is a crucial part of successful law enforcement. With the continuing demand being placed on patrol officers, one of the most valuable assets is a community that is willing to partner and act as the "eyes and ears" to make law enforcement aware of potential problem areas.
The Kansas City Missouri Police Department uses a "Community-Oriented Policing Strategy" to help open the lines of communication between the citizens and Police Department. Central Patrol staffs a Community Interaction Officer (CIO), whose job is to be a liaison between the Police Department, and the citizens of Kansas City.
Central Patrol Division also deploys several special units including "CAT" (Community Action Teams), "CAN" (Community Action Network), Bike Patrol and Footbeat Patrol. These units are assigned to specific areas within Central Patrol and work directly in a partnership with the community to eliminate crime and improve the quality of life for all who live, work, or visit the Central Patrol Division.
Central Patrol Division has a full-time Crime Analyst. The duties of the Crime Analyst include tracking crime statistics and identify crime patterns. The Crime Analyst also prepares monthly crime reports which are presented to the Board of Police Commissioners. The Crime Analyst provides local businesses and residents statistics for community meetings and presentations. The Crime Analyst uses advanced computer mapping technology to watch for crime trends, and is often an integral part of the investigation process.
