The Overland Park Coalition Against Drug Crime mission is to promote a safe, drug free environment for the residents of Overland Park. We are a volunteer community organization working to improve the livability of the Overland Park Neighborhood. We have partnered with County agencies and area businesses to improve our neighborhood. The Coalition is proud of the progress made over the past twelve years and is looking forward to continued progress in the future. We invite all residents of Overland Park to join us in the many programs, events, and activities to improve our community.
Working Together for a Better Community!
The next Coalition meeting will be Thursday Feb 27th, 2014, 6 pm to 8 pm, Round Table Pizza, Southgate Shopping Center.
The Coalition now has a BLOG. The BLOG was started as a way to help the neighborhood answer questions about the sewer project now underway. This is a good place to exchange information about the sewer.
The Coalition will be very busy again this year. All Coalition events are targeted to improve the quality of life in the Overland Park Neighborhood. Our events are an excellent way to volunteer in your neighborhood. Check out the events page.
The Neighborhood Watch program really works. It is how the residents of Overland Park took back their neighborhood. The Sheriff's office produces a fine newsletter with lots of information everyone should know. Check out the latest issue.
Clackamas County Sheriff's Office now has an online crime map. Note the lack for drug (D) crime on the map. This is quite a difference from just five years ago. There is still quite a bit of Theft (T) on 82nd Ave. There is still work to do.
A very good Ad campaign to get the word out about Meth. There is an excellent music video and documentary.
