KCPD CHIEF FORTÉ TOUTS KANSAS CITY CRIME FIGHTING EFFORTS FOR 2013!!!
KCPD Chief Forté offers a bit of hope for the New Year in his latest blog post.
KC NoVA moving forward, set to make big impact on violent crime in 2013
Read the entire post but here's are the basics on how the program will work from The Chief:
"Here at KCPD, I have assigned a captain to oversee the project, as well as a sergeant and two detectives. But the whole department will be participating in gathering intelligence and identifying the worst perpetrators of crime in our city. The KC NoVA team is collocated with prosecutors in the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office, and they are working with a research team at the University of Missouri Kansas City to analyze and diagram the city’s criminal networks, targeting the most central figures for swift and certain prosecution."
As far as this year goes there's a slight decrease in the KANSAS CITY'S TRIPLE DIGIT MURDER COUNT but shootings have increased along with other violent and property crime.
We hope for a more peaceful new year and realize that support for the KCPD and their rank and file is a big part of making that happen.
