Crime Prevention


The Merriam Police Department has compiled some basic crime prevention tips. These tips are by no means the only way for you to avoid being a victim of a crime. These are just tips and not guaranteed to prevent you from being a victim of a crime. Please check back with us, we will be adding more tips in the future:

House Checks

The Merriam Police Department also provides house checks for residents who are going to be out of town or otherwise away from home. This service is provided in an effort to reduce the possibility of Merriam citizens' homes being unlawfully entered while they are away. Citizens who are going to be away from home can request a house check online or complete the House Check form and return it to the Police Department prior to going out of town.
