Operation Greek

Operation Greek Logo

Operation Greek is a casual "meet and greet" created especially for students at K-State. It is a time for students to interact with police in a fun and positive environment. It has been a success for RCPD and it has also seemed to be popular with those students who have participated. Operation Greek has been held at house dinners, meetings, and even a pancake feed. RCPD Officers involved make attempts at creating an enjoyable and entertaining experience while also being informative.

The North East Regional Homeland Security Council has launched a Mass Notification service that allows us to alert you in both emergency and non-emergency situations. To participate, you must "opt-in" by entering your contact information and subscribe to notification(s) you desire based on your location(s). It will be vital for each user to enter and maintain their user profile data with the most up-to-date information to ensure that when notifications are send out that you receive them.

Safe Cam: A Community Watch Program

  Video cameras are an invaluable tool helping to detect and apprehend criminals. The Safe Cam Program allows the Riley County Police Department to partner with citizens and local businesses to create secure, private mapping of locations of cameras so our police officers can quickly contact you if your camera may have captured footage related to a crime.
