The Martin City CID Board recently voted to cover all security program costs for businesses located in Martin City!
“Security must be Martin City’s number one priority. If the public perception of our District is negative because crime reports are high, any positive momentum we’ve generated will decimate.”
The Martin City Community Improvement District has an annual contract with Orion Security Inc. to provide security patrol services within our District boundaries between 9:00 PM and 6:00 AM daily. During those hours, security officers monitor businesses for suspicious activity and when necessary, contact the business owner and/or Kansas City, Missouri, Police Department for assistance.
In the past, businesses have paid an annual fee to be a part of the security program to help cover a portion of the costs, however, the CID Board of Directors recently voted to cover ALL costs of the security program and will provide the Enhanced Security Service to ALL businesses located within our District boundaries.

Enhanced security service means an Orion security officer will enter your property and make sure everything is secure. They look for open doors, unlocked gates, broken windows, and suspicious vehicles or individuals on your property. If doors are found open or unlocked, the officer will exit their vehicle and make sure the door is closed and locked, if possible.
Orion officers can also respond to alarm calls during patrol hours. If they feel it’s something you should be aware of or if they have questions regarding suspicious activity on your property, the Orion dispatcher will contact you directly. Kansas City, Missouri Police Department will also be called if police assistance is needed.
