Raytown Police Department Releases 2016 Annual Report
Chief James B. Lynch and the Raytown Police Department has released the department’s 2016 Annual Report. Chief Lynch presented the report to the Mayor and Board of Aldermen at the Raytown Board of Aldermen meeting on 03-21-2017.
The report includes overall police activity, crime statistics, community activities, and features various divisions and special units within the department. The Raytown Police Department felt that it is important for its residents to be informed about their police department and how taxpayer resources are used. Chief Lynch encouraged everyone to view the Raytown Police 2016 Annual Report at http://www.raytownpolice.org. A printed copy will be retained, and made available to the public, at the Raytown Branch of the Mid-Continent Public Library.
The annual report is the result of work by a small group of department members from different divisions and units of the department. That small group worked to provide an all-encompassing view of the department. They saved Raytown taxpayers money by writing and developing the report themselves, publishing it online, limiting printing costs, and tailoring it to inform its citizens.
The Raytown Police Department strives to engage with and inform its residents and businesses, as well as the general public, as directly as possible. The annual report will be an important tool to enhance that communication.
