The Lee’s Summit Police Department is proud to offer to our residents the Lee’s Summit Safe Rental Properties (LSSRP) program. The purpose of the program is to develop an effective partnership between the Police Department and property owners with the goal of reducing crime in and around rental properties and to foster a safer community.
Once part of the program, which is no cost to the property, the Lee’s Summit Police Department will offer the following services:
- A monthly report of all calls for service on the property
- At the request of the Owner/Manager, a FREE emailed copy of any report taken on the property will be provided.
- A window sticker issued to the property, which can be displayed in the Office.
- A bi-annual newletter to distribute to the residents on property.
- Recognition on the City’s website as a participant.
The following are the requirements from the property to participate.
- Property must use and enforce the Crime Free Lease Addendum, which must be signed by all adults on the lease.
- Although not required, we request that a thorough background check be completed on all applicants.
- Must sign a Terms of Agreement with the Police Department
- Must distribute bi-annual Newsletter to the tenants, delivering crime prevention tips.
- Must provide entry code, after hours contact, and maps to the LSPD
Once established and properly enforced, the program will develop a more stable and satisfied tenant base, increase property value, reduce crime and fear of crime on the property as well as improving personal safety for tenants and landlords/manager’s.
For questions or to set up a meeting to join the program, please call the Community Interaction Office, 816.969.1708, or email LSPDCIO@cityofls.net
