KC NOVA Stays Losing Amid Murder Spike

Given the homicide spike over the past two years . . . This anti-violence effort has proven just as ineffective as so many other programs which have preceded it. Take a peek:

Kansas City No Violence Alliance program: Helping public safety or not?

The Kansas City No Violence Alliance is a program designed to directly deal with repeat violent offenders to give them better life options. The 41 Action News Investigators take a look at the effectiveness of that program as Chief Darryl Forte, who championed NoVA, retires May 20.

We don't need anymore programs we need cops on the street... PERIOD!!! Stop the programs and stop funneling much needed money to adhoc groups.

That's a great idea, 8:51am, and you're certainly right that that's what's needed.
But when you elect and appoint people in KCMO city government who have little or no appreciation or understanding of municipal government, or really even very little interest in what their responsibilities are, their regular course of action is to think that they can delegate away the boring responsibilities of providing direction and oversight for issues like public safety to every fake nonprofit or academic that comes along to take that job off their hands.
Thus we have ad Hoc, NoVa, Mothers in Charge, COMBAT, and who knows how many other people on public payrolls who mostly spend their time telling everyone what great jobs they're doing and asking for more money, but accomplish very little and have no accountability for results whatsoever.
Elect more regular folks interested in making their community a better place for the people and businesses that actually are here instead of politico celebrity wannabees who spend their time in office looking out for themselves, their friends, and campaign contributors, and who are looking for a private sector place to land at the end of their terms or what they're going to run for next.
You can't build much of anything without a strong foundation and KCMO government has been a regional joke for decades.

Past 10 Years of KCPD "Crime" Fighting Programs.
Kansas City Together, CompStat, Broken Windows, and now NOVA.
not to mention. ....
(Spot Spotter, New Police Academy, New Patrol Stations, New Helicopter, New Patrol cars, Police Take Home cars, Black Mayor, Black Police Chief, etc.)
What do they all have in common?
They all failed... and the cost the Taxpayer millions.
Not a dent in Crime rate or Homicide clearance rate.

Nova is a good thing but when you call 911 the ole Patrol Officer shows up and takes care of business not Nova.

Nova is a waste of time and money and the Patrol Officer shows up. Sooner or later, anyway.

Nova is a waste! Can't do much when you sit in the office and work day shift Monday thru Friday. So is hot spots and several others but don't complain or we can meet in the mat room! Anytime a supervisor has to go into a class and yell and get pissed off just telling everyone what they "do" then you are lying to yourself!

Sounds like you scare of blacks having (some privileges) like you.If you are that upset about skin tone... Go to the mountains and become a hermit. Perhaps you be much happier there. Did you know the indians land was stolen from them by deceitful folks? No rent..no taxes..just taken. Blacks pay rent like everyone else Could it be a meth head....lurking in the neighborhood or just a criminal whom comes in all skin tone, body sizes,male- female? Racism is a low self-esteem tactic to reassure your self..why YOU don't have something in life. Remember, slaves built America not the slave owner; who once again used or stole others accomplishments to obtain selfish wealth.Light complexion women in 1800 came from white man lusting black women and telling their wives..we need a nanny in the house and she must be lighter. They rape black children 12 years old...sometimes younger. But majority black do not resent whites at all. No hate. You're a sad person on the inside who needs psychological help. Please contact a psychologist to determine your real fears...Did you fall in love with a black man or woman who broke you heart and this hate develop..or are YOU intimidate by people with different skin tone having more than you at younger age? Maybe... you'll..................
be the next president..education may not be a requirement, but I will research and see if it applys.

You're probably the Indian creek murder. And I'm 1/4 American Indian. No one "stole" the Indians land here in America. The land did not belong to them no one gave it to them and no one sold it to them.
