Our mission is to empower crime victims by providing them the tools they need to overcome the trauma of victimization. We inform victim so their rights and advocate for those right to be upheld. We respect each person's right to make his or her own decisions as they navigate the criminal justice system. The Victim Services Unit is proactive in reaching out to victims in the community through education and awareness activities.
If you are the victim of a misdemeanor offense and the suspect was arrested, you may already have been given notice of the court date and time by the arresting officer. If you have questions about your case or the court date, please contact the Municipal Court Prosecutor’s Office at 913-573-5090.
If you are the victim of a misdemeanor offense and the suspect was not arrested, please wait for 5 days and then contact the Office of Dispute Resolution at 913-573-5225 to begin the prosecution process.
If you are the victim of domestic violence, please contact the Victim Services Unit at 913-573-5616 or visit the unit in the lobby of Police Headquarters at 700 Minnesota Avenue, Monday through Friday between the hours of 8am and 4pm. A certified victim advocate will have information on filing charges, Protection From Abuse orders, restraining orders, shelters, crime victim’s compensation, etc.
Felony cases are reviewed and compared against all other reported crime in order to identify suspects and crime patterns. Depending on leads and other circumstances, many felony cases are assigned to a detective for additional investigative follow-up. A detective will not necessarily contact you unless additional information is needed. If you have questions about a felony case, you can call the Investigations Bureau at 913-573-6020.
We share information about stolen items with other police agencies and certain businesses (pawn shops, etc.) in order to facilitate the identification and recovery of items. Stolen property with known serial numbers will also be entered into a national FBI database.
If you discover additional items that were taken, or locate needed serial numbers for your stolen items, please mail the information to the Records Unit as soon as possible. Be sure to include your name,address, phone number, and complaint number.
