EVALUATING THE KCPD KANSAS CITY "HOTSPOT" PROGRAM ONE YEAR LATER!!!
KCTV5 marks one year of "hotspot" policing with a report that's nearly as glowing as Lucy Pinder. I know for a fact that THE TKC BLOG COMMUNITY is far more critical.

Exclusive look at Kansas City's "hot spot policing" program
Again, it's worth noting that overall KANSAS CITY HOMICIDES REMAIN AT NEARLY THE EXACT SAME NUMBER AS LAST YEAR . . . However, boosters of the hotspot program argue that murders in "hotspots" are down from 30 to 19 this year. However, I'm not aware of any stat or quantifiable data which suggests those homicides weren't simply pushed to another part of town. Neighboring law enforcement officials, like the Meth Town Chief, are on record as staying their crime rate has increased thanks to "displacement" of KC area crooks.
But this discussion really belongs to readers . . .
To wit . . .
HAS "HOTSPOT" POLICING MADE FOR SAFER KANSAS CITY STREETS?!?!
Don't let JoCo d-bags dominate the talk . . . People who regularly visit Kansas City and the urban core are ENCOURAGED to offer their view of life in local hotspots.
