Times are changing, folks. If you need the police to "protect" you, don't count on it. They can't prevent you from being a crime victim. All they can do is write a report. Think about it for a moment...even if a police officer is standing right next to you, there is nothing to stop someone from shooting you dead. Having more police on the roads is no guarantee that you will be safe.

The blacks moved in and it's killing raytown, the whites with a good income are moving out and ghetto folks are moving in. The school district is still decent but it's going in the wrong direction now. Crime is up too. Not the place it used to be that's for sure

most of these comments...correct...the demographics of Raytown, MO, once a thriving white, blue collar, go to work each and every day suburb of metro KC is rapidly changing...those well maintained single family residences are beginning to look like those in Ruskin, parts of Grandview (also changing) and South KC...and as for police and police protection, will not keep pace with the events about to occur...sad

Raytown...a perfect example of blue collar successful white neighborhood that slowly turned to black and is getting crime ridden with property values plummeting.

When the police department says its staff is being cut I'd say that's the last call to get on the life boats because the Titanic is about to go down folks.

Raytown PD has always been a joke they could never save you or help you out and their best day and they've never had a best day I tell you they're the biggest fucking joke of a police department in the entire goddamn metro area I personally know of one murder that can be attributed directly to the Raytown Police Department they killed innocent woman, I and a few others know about it and they know about it now it's been a while back but it happened and it was a it was a life. A beautiful lovely person that the Raytown Police Department killed and nothing ever came of it so if any of you old-time Veterans of the Raytown PD want to get on here and talk about it I'm here you never take me up on it though you cowardly fat bastards you know what you did

I live in Raytown and have the utmost respect for our Raytown Police and EMS, we just moved to Raytown in February from KCMO and have witnessed on several occasions professional acts from the Raytown Police Department. One thing I love about living in Raytown is if you call 911 they actually answer the phone and dont put you on hold like they do in KCMO. ( and in a real emergency those seconds matter!!) The Raytown City Government needs to put public safety FIRST if they dont no city can survive, KCMO has the worst public saftey record ever! the real statistics of their response times and acheivements are cooked in the books, their citizens when they call 911 get put on hold, and lives have been lost because of it and the KCMO government could care less, and the difference between Raytown and KCMO is KCMO pumps tons of money into its public saftey, but even though they do its the worst PD/FD/EMS in the country because of response times and dedication to serving the public who pays them.
