TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! NEW DECALS FOR KCPD CARS AND CONSIDERING CHIEF FORTÉ'S VISION STATEMENT ONE YEAR LATER!!!
Observant Kansas City residents might have noticed a new look for KCPD vehicles.
New decals are being deployed by the Kansas City Police Department as part of an effort to spruce up their image.
This fact isn't really a secret and it's on the front page of the KCPD "Informant" Newsletter . . . Here's the money quote:
“We still want brand recognition, but wanted to freshen up the look for the new cars,” said the commander of the Fleet Operations Unit. “We wanted something that could be unique to the KCPD. What’s unique to us is our badge. No one else can utilize that particular badge.”
The new look is sleek, bold and colorful.
But all the talk about branding got AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS thinking about the progress of other KCPD communication efforts amid the EXTREMELY violent start to 2013.
To wit . . .
TKC TIPSTERS REMIND US TO CHECK PROGRESS OF A NEW VISION STATEMENT FROM KCPD CHIEF FORTÉ ONE YEAR LATER!!!
Amid a great deal of hope and celebration of Kansas City's First Black Chief Of Police . . . Chief Forté implemented the following new vision statement for the KCPD:
"To make Kansas City and the metropolitan area the safest community in the nation as a result of the efforts of the Kansas City Missouri Police Department and its many partners."
We noted the bold statement and also mentioned that the goal would require a great deal of work given this town's exceptionally high #9 ranking on the FBI's "most dangerous cities" list.
And so . . .
TKC TIPSTERS HAVE ASKED US TO GAUGE THE CHIEF'S PROGRESS ON MAKING KANSAS CITY THE SAFEST COMMUNITY IN THE NATION GIVEN A SPATE OF RECENT MURDERS AND A "JACK THE RIPPER" KILLER TARGETING LOCAL HOOKERS!!!
Respectfully, that's not our call to make . . . TKC is about conveying information, bombastic opinion, facts and dumb jokes.
On this one it's up to the blog community to make the call and possibly consider how they have helped Kansas City's tragic violence and murder situation over the past year.
DEVELOPING . . .
