Celebrate Fewer Kansas City Traffic Tickets!!!

Call this good news and probably the best example of community policing that local authorities have to offer . . . Traffic warnings are much appreciated and possibly the one of the better techniques to promote good vibes toward police. Consider this nice news for today: Stats show drop in KCPD traffic tickets

Pffffffft! As soon as the Trump protesters get done walking blisters on their feet they will be back in their unlicensed, broken down, windshield and muffler free rolling rust buckets and the local municipal court economy will flourish again.

have to agree that I really do appreciate when I get a warning to watch myself rather than just a ticket. KCPD has always been real with me and friendly. Very much appreciate what they do.

Crime is up, traffic tickets are down. The chief writes a blog that he can't do anything about crime, but he took credit 2 years ago. There aren't enough cops to do the work we used to, and that is the truth. The chief has buried this department in specialized units that don't combat crime. Promoted more commanders than we have ever had in history. No one on earth will even try to hold this guy accountable. 25000 less tickets isn't the story, it's just a symptom of the disease.

Forte hasn't been at work for 6 weeks, who in the hell is leading this place?

More shootings, more spectating police at the crime scene passing judgement on the dead and their family. It's just what the race baiters ordered. See, there's no time to write tickets.

Didn't Mayor Sly attend Hogan High School???? Why doesn't he focus extra KCPD effort on KC high homicide rate?

The truth of the matter is the Traffic Unit for years has required the Officers to write so many tickets per month, yes they had a quota. In August of this year, a new state law made it illegal for a police dept supervisor to require an officer to write a certain number of tickets. What the city is seeing is the officers, who for years were forced to h\work with a quota, taking a breather and just letting things relax just a bit.......
