SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY POLICE COMMUNITY INTERACTION OFFICERS KAPUT!!!



Community news for Sunday in a CONTROVERSIAL realignment of resources . . .

Here's a succinct report that tells us why this is important . . .

KCPD's move to dissolve community involvement officers raises concerns
More deets from Northeast News . . .
KCPD to reassign Community Interaction Officers

Here's a money line about the sitch . . .

During the public meeting on August 20, Forte further explained the rationale behind the reassignment of the department’s Community Interaction Officers. In Forte’s eyes, communities aren’t losing a CIO; they are gaining multiple new CIO’s.

“Every single person should be responsive to you all in that sector,” said Forte. “You’re not losing a CIO, you’re gaining some other people.”

Forte added that he didn’t want to put the burden of an entire community on one police officer.

The logic of the change has obviously met with disagreement from neighborhood leaders and part of an overall KCPD DOWNSIZING TREND amid a tighter budget and fewer officers on the streets.

Is this a tactical switcheroo that's smart or KCPD trying and failing to do more with less?

You decide . . .

I'm not sure what to think of this move but I do think it's bad timing from the Chief. Cutting back neighborhood interaction in the midst of a crime wave just isn't a good idea.

Onward there last night. That asshole brought the NAACP and Pat Clarke to support him. When we started questioning the chief he accused us of being bullies. Hey chief, you are a public employee, not a god. You answer the the public and if you can't you shouldn't have a job. It's time that the rest of Kansas City say goodbye to you. You lost your department, community support and your damned mind.

Forte is an idiot and only an idiot would want to run around town with his face on your t-shirt. He is no doubt, the worst Chief in the history of the KCPD.

McHale is really paying his dues to be Chief someday. Unfortunately he's had to hook his wagon to a terrible Chief. There's always the suburbs....

We need a heck of a lot fewer fireman and more policemen on the street.

What a buffoon!!! What he's really wanting is for no one but him to have communication with community leaders because he's a failure and he doesn't want that message going to anyone else in the department. Just another example of his working to consolidate power under his office. The absentee, cowardous Board of Police Commissioners will continue to just sit by and let it happen, with the apex of their failure coming later this month, when they approve Forte's racist, "why work for something you can get for free" policy allowing him to promote his own Captains. If that does happen, it will be time to call out Angela Wasson-Hunt, Police Board Member and Senior Vice President of Citizens Bank & Trust's Commercial Real Estate division, for her failure to stand up for the residents of Kansas City and the hard-working men and women of the police department by allowing it to happen, as she is the decisive vote. Her failure to act will destroy department morale and deepen the great divide within the department, as Forte shoves this down the throat of the majority of the police department; those members who still believe you should have to earn what you get. If Angela thinks she is going to avoid "widespread" ridicule for her failure and that it won't impact her business interests, she should think again. I will personally use my vast reach and the unlimited free time afforded to a retiree to drag her public image out of the shadows and into the mud, exposing her failures to every business and political member and entity I can reach. She will no longer get by cowering in the shadows. Angela, Stand up and do what is right.

Joe is a good guy and a good leader. It saddens me to see him blindly supporting Forte's constant line of BS.

Officers are way to busy and they lack the resources to fill the void of the CIO's. Good luck calling 311!

Just another KCPD epic fail.

KCPD has not had a good Police Chief in the past 10 years.

...and it will take a strong leader and decades to repair the damage that has been done.

"KCPD's move to dissolve community involvement officers...." That's gotta hurt! Why not just reassign them?

It's horribly debilitating for the city to have beings in charge whose IQs and brain capacity are much less than those of whites.

The brain and nervous system of the negro is smaller and more coarsely organized than in the other varieties of man. The brain substance is, on an average, nine cubic inches less in bulk than that of a Caucasian. Negroes with very large, fine heads, may still have very small brains, because the actual capacity of the cranium is encroached upon the extreme thickness of the bones. The organs of sense are acute, especially those of hearing and smell - the conformation of the latter approaching the animal type.

Been proven over and over.

No use disputing facts.

Joe McHale is a suckass. Never been a real policeman. He is just a yes man . He's not a bully like his dad was, but he still sucks as a Commander

Don't worry folks! Things are safer than they've ever been. The community police program was just for show during the East Patrol debacle, followed by the Mike Brown - hands up, don't shoot propaganda. It was something police wanted to try for the sake appeasing a handfull of people. Now, that society has moved on to randomly shooting police, the jig is up. Duh! Now back to your regularly scheduled propaganda, urban gunfights and stray bullets.

Huge mistake. I can no longer support this Chief.

Exactly right 12:47. The entire board needs to stand up and say "Enough"! A huge change is needed NOW and yes, it starts at the top. No use trying to talk to Forte - he will tell you in New York minute he does not care...and he absolutely means it.

Yet another thing black people have ruined. At least back in the Pendergast era when he ran the police department things still got done. Their was corruption out the ass but things got accomplished in this city. All black people do is destroy.

Evidently you have not worked for some of KCPD's "finest" commander's (or you are a jealous commander which is probably the case). If you had [worked] you would realize that he cares for his people, stands up for his people, and does what he thinks is right. I worked for his father and he also was a good cop, a cops cop...easy to bash those that have passed...he was one of the last "real cops".

Like it or not the Chief is the boss and he has to support his boss, like we all do, the only people that can change that is the board.

Some people have been a problem in Missouri for a long time. Shame on you spreading venom like poisonous snakes. Become policemen/women and solve the damn problems that you complain about. Or, leave the city and country!

Don't worry there is public money already allocated for a development study for the Crossroads the police will just have to make do.

Let the city slide closer to hell to spare the feelings and ego of its inept police chief. Yep; seems pretty much on par for KCMO.

This is not new. KCPD has been going down the toilet for years now.
It started with Corwin.

And to think that this Moron thinks his Patrol folks will have the time to be the new CIO's of the department? Well sir, no disrespect, but "BLOW ME" and the other hundreds of Patrol Officers who bust their ass everyday. Not to mention you have made us all a target in the past few weeks with your "RACIST" comments. I would strongly suggest you start staying in your luxury apartment (office) that you had built on the 5th floor. Wonder if the taxpayers know how much was spent on that office?

The only hope for KCMO would be the resurrection of Bull Connor.

They need to have Tony and his censoring bloggers approve all decision by the police brass. That would sure fix everything.

shout out and salute to all the good officers who do bust their ass everyday & night.. it sucks that it seems your chief,our chief,is making it harder on you all to just do your damn job

wtf kind of police chief would say that shit,during this time,especially

Um, let's not forget that the Metro CIO used to drive his police car HOME (near TMC Lakewood) for lunch each day. About 2 of his daily 8 duty hours were spent getting lunch. Most CIO's give their communities lip service, write the communities' bitch list on a take-out bag, then hand it to the Desk Sgt. to be given to the working Copper to handle. Giving these 6 geniuses new assignments is for the better.

Forte' is screwing up a lot of things, but this isn't one of them.

How in the fuck do you know what any CIO's do? If you are doing your own job and taking care of your own shit you wouldn't know. You must be one of those buddy fucking station pussies that won't do anything to help one of your own. Look in the mirror. The person looking back at you is an asshole.
