Accident Reports
To access an accident report, please mail in a self-addressed envelope with payment or respond directly to the Fairway Police Department. A fee of $5.00 will be charged. Every effort is made to have reports accessible within five to seven business days from the report date. However, there are many factors that can cause a delay. Please note that K.S.A. 45-230 prohibits the use of information contained in police reports for marketing purposes. Violators will be prosecuted.
 
Alarm Permits
In accordance with the Fairway Municipal Code Chapter 8 Article IV Division 2 Security Alarm Systems, homeowners/tenants with home alarm systems are required to register those alarm systems with the Fairway Police Department. This can be done by contacting the Police Department at (913) 262-2364 during normal business hours. You will be asked to complete an alarm permit application. There is a one-time $10 registration fee required at the time of application. Completed applications can be sent, along with the $10 registration fee, to the Police Department at 5252 Belinder, Fairway, KS 66205. You will then receive an alarm permit. This adhesive sticker should be placed in a prominent location near the front entrance or front window so a responding officer can note the registration number. 
 
Officers responding to a home alarm will leave an "alarm notification form" that indicates the date and time of the alarm. Please contact the Fairway Police Department should you have any questions about this process or any alarm related correspondence you receive from us.

Neighborhood Net

In today's world, footage is a crime solving tool, sometimes becoming the missing piece of a complex puzzle. The Neighborhood Net Community Camera Program is a voluntary sign-up system to better assist Fairway Police Officers in the investigation of crimes. Private citizens can submit their contact information and details of security cameras to formulate a confidential map of our city, only accessible by the Fairway Police Department. 

  

Any security cameras or doorbell video systems that record public areas of the city, such as streets, sidewalks, etc., can be signed up for the program. This program does NOT give Fairway Police Officers access to your security systems but provides address and contact information for quick contact and evidence collection. 

 

Registration is voluntary, and participants can withdrawal their participation at any time. Register

Solicitor Permits
The City of Fairway's Municipal Code requires that all solicitors complete an application and be issued a permit to solicit within the city limits. There is a permit fee of $50 per solicitor, not per organization. Upon completion of the permit application and payment of the $50 permit fee, a background investigation is conducted, if the individual passes the background check a permit will be issued. The permit is a laminated photo ID that the solicitor is required to wear on their person at all times while soliciting within the city limits.

In accordance with the City's solicitation ordinance the Police Clerk will maintain a list of persons and their respective addresses within the City who wish to restrict visits to their property by peddlers, solicitors, and canvassers. Both a copy of the no visit list, as well as the City's solicitation ordinance is available by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page.  

Each solicitor who obtains a permit to solicit within the City of Fairway will be given a copy of those persons who are registered on the "No Visit" list. If you are registered on the City's "No Visit" list and a solicitor attempts to make contact at your residence, please notify the police department by calling (913) 262-2364 between the hours of 8:30am and 5:00pm; if it's after 5:00 p.m. please call the dispatcher at (913) 782-0720.

Temporary No Parking Policy
The Fairway Police Department strives to ensure emergency vehicles can safely navigate all roadways within the City. Residents hosting events that have the propensity to attract large numbers of vehicles are required to post "NO PARKING" signs on one side of the roadway to prevent attendees from parking on both sides of the street and preventing safe travel space for regular and emergency traffic. NO PARKING signs are available at the Fairway City Hall, 5240 Belinder, during normal business hours. Residents will be required to leave a fully refundable $3 per sign cash deposit. You will have 30 days after your event to return the signs and get your deposit back; after 30 days your deposit is forfeited. Contact any member of the Fairway Police Department to discuss this important traffic safety issue.
