In the past 14 months, 266 offenses have been reported within 200 feet of the river, in the general area from Harry Street to the Keeper of the Plains. Those offenses include vandalisms, drug offenses, larcenies, assaults and homicide.
To make our riverfront safer and more inviting for citizens, visitors, and businesses, the Wichita Police Foundation is seeking financial support to expand the Wichita Police Department's existing camera system to cover 2.3 miles of riverfront and riverfront walking paths from the Keeper of the Plains to south of the Harry Street bridge.
The implementation of this technology will be a valuable asset to the Wichita Police Department, citizens, and business community.
Invest in public safety today! Together, we can transform the riverfront into a safe and inviting destination for all to enjoy!
Budgets for public safety are planned well in advance each year. Technological advances and demands for new training can occur quite rapidly. Your donation will help ensure our officers will receive the most up to date equipment, training and resources available to keep our city safe.

Eyes on the River
On Monday, June 15th, we learned that some protests are asking Wichitans, as well as people across the nation, to boycott businesses supporting the police.
On June 16th, the Eagle published a statement that “the donor list was scrubbed from the foundation’s website recently.” They did so without fact checking with us for the reasons why we took this action. 2020 has brought enough obstacles for businesses and individuals, the risk of boycotting doesn’t need to add another obstacle, so we acted to protect our donors and their businesses.
The Wichita Police Foundation is working to make Wichita a better and safer city by meeting the essential and evolving needs of the Wichita Police Department.
