NEWSFLASH: More Police On Kansas City Streets Might Help Fight Crime!!!

Dead-Tree discovers a longstanding community complaint. Here's their Friday report on the way out the door and back to the suburbs:

Report recommends KC Police Department trim management, put more officers on patrol

Kansas City's police department is top heavy with managers compared to other similar-sized or larger cities, and should work quickly to get more patrol officers on the street, a study released Friday recommends. "Most larger police departments have fewer managers than does Kansas City," said the 300-page report by the Matrix Consulting Group.

Captain Obvious agrees, obviously.

Getting rid of Jean Petersucker Baker would help fight crime.

Why is pretty much everything in KCMO "managed" by people who require outside consultants to tell them what's going on in their departments?
And any thought of oversight by elected officials seems unimaginable.
Amateur hour on the plains.

Been cheaper to read TKC where more officers on the streets are needed is mentioned almost once a day.

And just like the firefighters o.t. saga nothing will happen. Every few years these consultants get paid thousands and thousands of taxpayer dollars to rehash this same crap and NOTHING changes. Note what Berardi said that they would look at it..........PD will do the same

They need to do it immediately. There are long periods of time every single day all hours of the day and night where there are zero police cars available in the city for any type of call. This is totally unacceptable

Get rid of that dumb ass nova , beef up assault squad, start a new rapid retard unit for each watch, have those lazy asses be pro active during hotspots and answer callls for service. Make those pencil pushers be assigned to patrol 1 weekeend a month so they don't forget from which they came. Shit I can go on all day.

KCPD is way too top heavy. There are too many topped out people riding desks instead of patrolling the streets. There are commanders who are so fucking stupid they couldn't lead a circus sideshow.
