District Board Meetings

Olathe National Night Out

Visit Our News page for prior year's story

During the months of October 2020 and August 2021 fun filled evenings for Olathe were hosted by OFPD and OPD, bringing in the MCSO K-9 Unit and more from the world of first response.  A Chili cookoff turned into many bowls of chili for the public - no winner was declared, but good food enjoyed by all.  Dancing in the street got the Chief out kicking his shoes and the Olathe Police Department joined in the fun.  This event is quickly becoming a tradition and we look forward to hosting more in years to come!  Stay tuned for more...
