May is Law Enforcement Appreciation Month and we invite you to join us at Martin City’s Community Tree (in front of the KC Running Company Store) to celebrate the many law enforcement professionals committed to keeping our community safe.

“We want you to know us when you see us around the neighborhood,” says KCPD Officer Mary McCall, one of Martin City’s Community Interaction Officers from the South Patrol. “This is a wonderful opportunity to meet local police officers and get to know us in person.”

If you haven’t met Officers Mary McCall and Aaron Whitehead, you’re missing out on two of our community’s biggest fans. Both McCall and Whitehead are long-time veterans of the Kansas City Missouri Police Department and have worked closely together for over 17 years protecting South Kansas City and the Martin City area.

Officers Mary McCall and Aaron Whitehead are Community Interaction Officers in Martin City.

Donate a Backpack to Kids at Martin City Elementary School!

Almost 800 students attend Martin City K-8 School in Martin City and KCPD Officers will be collecting as many backpacks as possible during this four-hour Appreciation event to donate to the school.

We’re already planning to help them out and hope you can donate a backpack (or two!) so students at Martin City K-8 will be ready for school! 🎒💙🎒💙🎒💙🎒💙
