KANSAS CITY POLICE QUOTA SHOCKER!!!



Kansas City news discovers a fun fact that just about everybody else has always assumed was the case . . .

Money quote:

Kansas City Police Department officers are now required to conduct a certain number of stops during their shift, according to a memo obtained this week by KCTV5 News.

Again, I'm not sure if this is the world's greatest injustice . . . WHAT DO YOU D-BAGS THINK?!?! The local po-po on the clock and mandated to make contact really doesn't seem so bad given that the Mayor and City Council pretty much hide from almost every local disagreement.

Me thinks the word you are looking for is quota not quote. They are giving estimates?

Will Dunkin Donuts qualify as a stop?

Typical. Big-city police departments are mostly organize crime in uniforms. Killer City is no different from the others.

The budget for actual city services is being cut, the red light camera money is gone, there are staff layoffs, and every available dollar is being diverted to make up for the fact that the original TDD is generating near enough money for the Main Street streetcar.
The polce, along with everyone else at 12th and Oak, have to try to make up the difference.
And the other 83% of the metro population wthat doesn't live in KCMO watches with absolute amazement at the mindless and irresponsible spending and congratulates themselves again for deciding not to live there.

'Good thing we have a lot of black and brown people living here. 'Makes it easier for these kids to fill their quotas.

Also remember this is coming down from the mayor, city council, city judges, and the chief. They are making the officers do this because of the severely flawed E--TICKET system that does not work. It is so slow the officer quit writing the ticket so as not to take 30 minutes on a traffic stop. So know when you get stopped and get a bunch of tickets don't be mad at the cop doing his job take it out on the higher ups who have forgot what its like to work for a living.

Prairie Village has been like that for a long time except it's an actual number of tickets officers must write per day. Officers not making their numbers are suspended and passed up for special assignments and promotions.

I guess I am not seeing what the big deal is all about. Officers should go out on patrol each and every day and look for violations and probable cause to stop cars and pedestrians for criminal activity. If you encounter a car with mutiple warrants, a gun or drugs so be it. If it takes 2 hours out of your shift, so be it. If all you can do in an 8 hour shift is make two arrests, so be it. If all 1300 officers would take that mentaility, we might just make a dent in crime. Of course I also understand that if officers are tied up on arrests, they can't handle calls but that would be the command staff's problem.

Here is a article I received from one of KC's top echelon POWER BROKERS, not a phony TKC wanna-be-city hall-janitor. This individual sat on one of the top area law enforcement commissions and was/is one of the most respected individuals in KC over the last 20 years.

You Gotta Love
Texas

***The City of Dallas, Texas passed an ordinance
Stating that if a driver is pulled over by law enforcement
And is not able to provide proof of Insurance, the car is towed.

To retrieve the car after being impounded, they must show
Proof of insurance to have the car released. This has made
It easy for the City of Dallas to remove uninsured cars.
Shortly after the "No Insurance" ordinance was passed,
The Dallas impound lots began to fill up and were full
After only nine days.
Over 80% of the impounded cars were driven by illegals.
Now, not only must they provide proof of insurance to
Have their car released, they have to pay for the cost of the tow,
A *$350 fine, and *$20 for every day their car is kept
In the lot.

Guess what?
Accident rates have gone down *47% and Dallas ' solution
Gets uninsured drivers off the road *WITHOUT* making
Them show proof of nationality.

I Wonder how the
Holder's US Justice Department
Will get around this one.
* * * * *
** Just brings tears to your eyes doesn't it? **

*** GO Dallas ***
AMEN TO THAT
I can't stop smiling!

The KCPD has had this for years. You're expected to go out and work when on duty. There has to be some measure of your work. Same thing at most other businesses.

BREAKING, the PD has been doing this for 20 years

I retired in 05, this is really nothing new. They required a certain number of stops back then.

How is a KCPD officer supposed to make traffic stops when they are blacked out most of the time? I want them to work too, but crime has nothing to do with ticket numbers. It's all about revenue.

0930 AKA Sgt, Capt, or Major. How many stops do you make per shift? How many tickets do you write? Do you even know how to use the ticket machine? Since the PD is a "business" how much money did it earn last year. No, I'm not an officer, but I know you doucebags have all been to the same class about ticket numbers. Just read your officer's log sheets to find out what they have done and let the traffic guys worry about the ticket numbers.

Why did Crispin Rea vote against selling Westport High? That is a terrible vote and we will not forget.

Nothing more than picking up the lost revenue from the lack of the red light cameras to the patrol officers refusal to write traffic tickets. Using a piece of crap technology E-ticket machine that some dumbass commander approved of without first having the devices used first by the actual folks who would be using them (think they gave this commander an award for this). Lets not forget the new traffic unit that is coming down the pike.

Not true, the e-ticketing device were field tested by the Traffic Unit for weeks. 95% of traffic love the e-ticket machines. A single stop takes about 3 minutes.

The 19 officers going to traffic May 1st will help with that since they have to write 160/month.

Just as long as everyone understands that officers are being told to do this from the higher ups...this is not the officers own doing.

False, takes a bit more time than that.

Yes, the traffic guys do like them,however a large majority are written out on the highway, not the inner city where there is less than best reception. Lets also not forget that the traffic unit has "boosters" on their devices that work far faster than the low of lows patrolman.

This is the kind of crap a police chief dreams up when he is defeated in his crime prevention efforts. The name of the game is not to tighten down the screws on a free society. The name of the game is to take the majority of officers who are working pussy patrol and other SAFE assignments, get then into the the hard core of the city and start cleaning up the crime. When the heat is on no one wants to be the example. We need to end this era of bullshit press lines and get some damn effective crime reduction effort out of our PD.
