Holts Summit Police Department

Holts Summit Police Department

Citizens of Holts Summit, MO, are blessed with a very professional and experienced police department.

One night I was driving home, and an officer pulled me over.  I thought, “What have I done now?”  He approached my car and advised my headlight was out.  That was it.  No ticket, just a very courteous stop to help me out.  My husband replaced it the next day.

Jamestown - Why I Chose To Live Here

Jamestown - Why I Chose To Live Here

When my wife and I chose to move to central Missouri about ten years ago, we wanted to live away from sizeable cities (think St. Louis and Kansas City), but close enough the necessities of life (think groceries, home improvement, etc).  Central Missouri provided the perfect location halfway between my home state (Oklahoma) and my wife's (Ilinois), thus it provided the perfect spot for trips to visit family.

Churches in Holts Summit

Churches in Holts Summit

When moving to a different town, there are so many things to check out including schools, churches, police, etc.  For a small town, Holts Summit has a lot to offer with different dominations of churches.  My husband and I moved here in 1980 and we didn’t think about this. It took us some time to find that right church home. I feel this is very important to consider, along with schools, and other factors.
