The student felt as if the man driving the truck was watching her, and observed him waving as he passed by. The man was driving a newer model, red, two door pickup truck and was described an older white male, between 40-50 years old, balding, and wearing a grey t- shirt. The man never stopped the truck and left the area at a slow speed. There is no further description of the man or truck, at this time. The investigation of the incident is underway.

Raytown Police encourage parents to talk to their children about strangers and recognizing, and how to handle, potentially dangerous situations. Parents may choose to use the resources of the National Crime Prevention Council’s website, http://www.ncpc.org/topics/violent-crime-and-personal-safety/strangers, to start that conversation.

Raytown Police Safety Fair

The third annual Raytown Police Safety Fair was well attended.  Police, Fire, Public Works, EMS, and the local ham radio club were some of the organizations with equipment on display and personnel to answer questions. An added bonus was a free hotdog, chips, cookie and a soft drink.  It should be noted that while the Police Chief’s car looks fast, Chief Lynch opted for a 6 cylinder, gas saving model.  A wise choice, since he is probably not called to do high-speed chases.

Here are a couple of photos and a quick video of the event.
