Kansas City hip-hop collaboration with the latest and greatest anti-crime effort . . .


Kansas City No Violence Alliance (KC NoVA)

Youtube detail:

"KC NoVA, the new effort in Kansas City to reduce violent crime, is a collaboration of all key law enforcement agencies, the city of Kansas City, the University of Missouri-Kansas City and community members, including the families of homicide victims, as well as MORE2, a faith-based group. Focused-deterrence programs such as KC NoVA are proven to reduce violence by messaging to individuals in social groups associated with violence."

Here's the presser . . .

First call-ins in Kansas City

More than three dozen individuals identified in social networks or groups associated with violent crime in Kansas City appeared Wednesday at the first “call-ins” held by the Kansas City No Violence Alliance (KC NoVA).

Those attending were asked to help the community stop violence and were offered social services to help them.

Capt. Joseph McHale, project manager for KC NoVA, said the call-ins were an important early step in the new effort to reduce violent crime in Kansas City .

“Our goal is to get the message to the streets of Kansas City that violence must stop,” McHale said. “Any new violence will become the focus of KC NoVA.”

On Thursday, KC NoVA also released to the media and public a new KC NoVA video, which was played for the first time at the call-ins. A new KC NoVA song also was released. Mike B. Rollen, who made the film “Murder Factory”, produced the NoVA video. (See links and download options at end of this statement.)

On Wednesday, three call-in sessions were held at the Mohart Multipurpose Center at 10 a.m, 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Speaking to the individuals called-in:

Police Chief Darryl Forte
Pastor Michael Brooks, 5th District Kansas City Councilman
U.S. Attorney Tammy Dickinson
ATF Special Agent in Charge Marino Vidoli
Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker
Tim Wolf of Missouri Probation and Parole
Brian Dial of Ad Hoc Group Against Crime
Darren Brown, author and ex-offender
Pat Clarke, community outreach specialist
The Rev. Rodney Williams
Several mothers of homicide victims

KC NoVA is a coalition of key law enforcement, Kansas City leaders and community members aimed at reducing violent crime, especially homicides. Call -ins are an important part of such an effort, known as focused deterrence. At call-ins, individuals attending are delivered three basic messages: Violence cannot be tolerated; Further violence will be met with certain and severe consequences from law enforcement; and we can help those who want the help to change.

Other call-ins will be held throughout 2013 by KC NoVA. In other cities, focused deterrence programs similar to KC NoVA have produced significant reductions in violent crime.

The street car and new airport are going to provide all the new "jobs" required to lift East KC out of poverty.

Time is of the essence so we must not delay!

Pay attention people, even though Forte had NOTHING to do with this initiative, he's going to put this at the top of his resume to try to convince KC that he should keep his job. Don't be fooled, he's still the ignorant, do nothing idiot he's been since becoming Chief.

Social serviced provided all they have to do is pledge to not act out. Sounds like payment to not commit crime. Great idea , said no one ever.

At least not everybody has givin up. There are cops out there doing their job. Start looking at the Jackson County judges. Judge Torrence..." if I put you in prison, I have to let somebody out. Therefore I will give you one more chance and sentence you to 5 years suspended execution of sentence and two years of probation. Or how about another example Judge Byrne. " Your probation has been revoked and you are sentenced to 5 years in prison, but since you are such a nice guy. Ill give you a week before you have to turn yourself in. In your spare time, feel free to victimize more Hyde Park residents.
