Block Captain Program
The Oak Meyer Gardens Block Captain Program is designed to keep residents connected and familiar with each other on a block by block basis. Under the program, a volunteer “captain” is designated for each block. The block captain maintains a directory of current contact information for each resident on the block. The intent of the program is to enable and encourage communication between neighbors, especially in the event of an emergency.
If you are unsure if your street has a block captain, or if you are interested in volunteering, please contact OMG President, Valerie Schroer, through our contact page.
Neighbors watching out for one another (along with a few lights left on at night) is the best defense against crime. To prevent crime, one of the most important things we can do is report suspicious activity. If you believe the call warrants immediate attention, dial 911. If the situation is not life threatening, but does require a police officer to be dispatched, call the non-emergency number at 816- 234-5111. If you have witnessed something in the past that you did not act on, but now feel it may be relevant, call Officer John Trainor at 816-349-6428. He can also be emailed at JTrainor@kcpd.org.
