TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KCPD EARN MORE CASH FOR FULL-TIME DWI UNIT DESPITE MISSOURI CHECKPOINT CUTBACKS!!!
There's a political element to the fight for control of Kansas City streets on the weekends and late nights.
To wit . . .
KCPD STEP UP THEIR DWI CRACKDOWN GAME WITH RECENT CASH GRANTS!!!
Legislative proof of the check in the mail . . .
Ordinance #190055: Estimating revenue and appropriating $180,273.00 in the Police Grants Fund for the DWI Full Time Unit; and designating requisitioning authority.
Po-po want to play down this effort because state lawmakers have recently cut the purse strings of heavy handed DWI enforcement.
Remember that last year the Missouri House stripped funding for DUI checkpoints in move that many hardline Conservatives backed along with liberty minded locals and progressive opponents of law enforcement crackdowns. Fact is, mobile phone tech pretty much destroyed the effectiveness of checkpoints.
Nevertheless, the effort to closely monitor late night drivers is still a fact of life in both KCMO and all of the surrounding suburbs -- This money boost is one of many legislative efforts that proves as much.
