TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY POWER PLAYERS PUSH FOR OUTSIDER HIRE OVER 1ST LADY TOP COP PROMOTION AMID SEARCH FOR NEW POLICE CHIEF!!!



Right now the Police Board is on the cusp of a groundbreaking move that would recommend the appointment of the first female Chief of Police in Kansas City history. Opposition from within the department and throughout Missouri hopes to prevent this bit of leadership progress.

To wit . . .

LOOK FOR POLITICOS TO START TALKING ABOUT KANSAS CITY POLICE "CULTURE" AMID A PUSH TO SEEK NEW LEADERSHIP FROM OUTSIDE THE DEPARTMENT!!!

Personally, most of the names being thrown around are all fine prospective leaders . . .

But the reality is that the selection of a new Kansas City Chief of Police is a secretive, byzantine and highly political process with community participation put on mostly for show.

Kansas City voters have absolutely no say in the matter and very little checks or balances against public officials who make this decision thanks to the state-run department - The selection of a Chief is actually one of the more apt arguments in favor of City Hall KCPD control.

Still . . . The top cop audition wasn't as fun last night according to insiders and the real impact is that the Gov. and the Missouri GOP hegemony looking to make an EPIC impact here in Kansas City by way of tougher law enforcement and a departure from past administrations.

And so we put the question to our blog community . . .

SHOULD THE NEW KCPD CHIEF COME FROM WITHIN OR OUTSIDE THE DEPARTMENT???

You decide . . .

Man, woman doesn't matter. KC needs to find the best police for this job who can stop throwing out buzz words for fighting crime and instead focus on results.

Only blacks need apply.

If this is up to Missouri Republicans, expect Sheriff Joe Arpaio to make the short list.

Outside by all means. KCPD needs someone new to come in as a leader and do a little house cleaning.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio would be great!

While this decision is like pretty much everything else associated with KCMO "government", secretive, behind-closed-doors, and uninterested in qualifications or merit, it ISN'T being done by some cabal in Jeff City.
The Police Board is made up of KCMO residents who have been nominated by KCMO politicos and appointed by the governor.
And the mayor is one of five members.
For anyone who is so uninformed that they might think "local control" is a good idea, just take a quick look at the sewer and water departments, the public works department, administration, and all the other operations that are currently supposedly "managed" locally and ask yourself why having the PD, or anyone else, report to the gang at 12th and Oak.
It certainly wouldn't make the PD any more effective.
And, if experience is any guide, it would probably be much much worse.

^^^ Tell me you didn't sucker for that "Free Speech" crapola.

KC needs to go outside. The chief needs to be a trainer, free from local corruption by osmosis, needs to have validated management experience, needs to have the fortitude to change the KCPD culture, improve morale, implement real fairness, uniformity and competitiveness in the promotion process, needs to understand that he does not work for the mayor, needs to demand that his men and women are the most professional in uniform and then treat them that way, needs to being the KCPD lab and crime scene efforts into this century, needs to maximize current trends and standards in DNA and other forensic technologies.

KCPD needs a no bullshit, non political Cheif who doesn't need to be reminded about the responsibility and obligations that come with wearing that shield. He has to be untainted by the local culture and he needs to reaffirm the integrity and values required from top to bottom.

Hell with this notion that all you have to do is keep your nose clean, hang on for 25 years and you will ascend to the throne. If KC has not seen where that program leads the whole damn city is asleep at the wheel. If ever a metro needed a huge upgrade in its policing and law enforcement concepts it is now.

@9:52. You're comment is smart and I totally agree with it. If Tony deletes some of the shitty ones that just clog up section and keep us from reading good ones like this, then he should delete more.

Might as well hire from within. The chief we know is better than the one we don't know.

I'm betting they hire the most Cole black Muslim Somalian they can find. Probably be a goddamned jihadist too, blood thirsty mother fucker who hates honky's...nothing shocks me anymore

Hire Melissa Click, the former University of Missouri assistant professor for the KCPD Chief job. She is both from out of town and knows how to call for some "muscle".
KCPD is the biggest joke in town anyway, might as well add to the comedy with her.

5/16/17, 7:30 AM .... isn't KCPD part of the sewer department already?

Little help here. .what does it mean when your butthole itches, butthole & ass crack just itch like a mug!!

Any answers/suggestions on why and how to remedy this situation? I'd sure appreciate it.

Absolutely. The internal command staff are weak followers, willing to maintain the status quo. The PD definitely needs a chief from the outside who can push aside all of the ads kissers.

Just take a big dump and stick a hat and badge in it.
Presto .... Instant Police Chief.

Kc city will get a racist white guy just to say we hear the white nationalist masses. He will go down to the plaza with a heavy Gestapo type presence. And within 24 hours the plaza will be on fire. See what you fools don't realize is they need a chief who is pro everyone not white black or a woman. We need a police officer who is pro police and community. You say what u want but u had Forte. Do you really think Baltimore, Milwaukee or ferguson can't happen in KC. Your last chief by in large prevented all that.
