The Coalition is piloting a public safety email address for Marlborough residents to share crime and safety information specific to our neighborhood. is a communication option for people who choose not to contact the police department to share information about a public safety issue or incident that is pertinent to the Marlborough neighborhood. The email will be monitored by the Coalition’s Public Safety Task Force. The Task Force will anonymously report information to the KCPD Metro Patrol and will review shared information to determine if there are ways that neighborhood action might help address a problem. If you have questions or comments about this pilot effort, email

Call 911 immediately if you believe you are experiencing or witnessing an emergency that needs an immediate response, including circumstances that could escalate to a crime, shots fired, and threatening situations. Do not rely on communication through this email for immediate urgent needs.

Tips pertaining to unsolved crimes, missing persons, and most wanted fugitives should be reported to or (816)474-Crime. Tips can be made anonymously and cash awards are possible for certain cases.

Join with neighbors and friends in a casual format to get to know what the Coalition does, why it does what it does, and a few of our key partners. and neighbors who are currently leading the charge to build a healthy, resilient, vibrant community for everyone who calls Marlborough home. We'll travel down memory lane just a little, and review a bit of demographic information to give some context to what the Coalition is currently doing. We are excited to hear your thoughts about the Coalition's work and your ideas on advancing the Coalition's mission. 

We believe in transparency, listening to all voices, nurturing diverse neighborhood leaders, and finding creative and equitable solutions to the entrenched urban problems that challenge our neighborhood.  We need you to be informed and involved to whatever degree works for you. From sharing the Coalition's social media posts - to directing clean-up day traffic - to planning the Youth Arts Festival with the Arts & Culture Task Force - to applying to be a board member - it will take all of us - homeowners, renters, young, old, businesses, educators, partner agencies, and civic leaders to work together to achieve a common vision for Marlborough.

To register, sign up on-line at, send an email to info@wearemarlborough, or call (816)866-6279. We will follow up with attendance option information.
