The Olathe Police Department (OPD) participates in the annual Benchmark Cities Survey along with 29 other police agencies across the country. The Safe City Rating is based on "Group A Crimes (Total) per 1,000 Citizens", a measure reported on in this survey. Olathe achieves a Safe City Rating when our Group A Crimes (Total) per 1,000 Citizens ranks in the Top 10% of all benchmarked cities. 2020 data will be available in late 2021.
