TKC MUST READ!!! KCPD CHIEF PROMOTES CASH FOR TIPS AMID BLOODY SPRINGTIME KANSAS CITY HOMICIDE SPIKE!!!



There have been 41 murders so far this year compared to 39 at this time last year for an overall uptick that hasn't been seen in at least a decade despite a horrifically cold winter.

Nevertheless . . .

CHECK THE KCPD CHIEF SHARING GOOD NEWS ABOUT CASH FOR TIPS THAT'S MOSTLY UNCOLLECTED!!!

According to this post, most of the cash is uncollected. Credit where it's due, the Chief might be the only public official in KCMO trying to give cash away to regular people for doing the right thing . . .

KCPD Chief's Blog: Four people have earned $10K reward for homicide tips, none has claimed it

Deets:


A year ago, in April 2018, we partnered with the Kansas City Metropolitan Crime Commission, its Greater Kansas City Crime Stoppers TIPS Hotline and the City of Kansas City, Missouri, to increase the possible reward for valid tips in homicide cases to $10,000. In November 2017, we’d increased it to $5,000. Before that, it was $2,000.

The hope was the increased reward amount would make more people come forward with anonymous information that would solve homicides that take place in Kansas City, Mo., and bring the perpetrators of these crimes to justice. Indeed, homicide tips, specifically, have gone up a bit, according to Crime Stoppers Coordinator Detective Kevin Boehm. The percentage of those that are valid remains about the same, however.

Overall, tips from across the metro area to Crime Stoppers have increased by about 10 percent over the past two years. The actual number of phone calls is going down, but tips submitted online and through the P3 Tips app have gone up.

Since increasing the possible reward for KCMO homicide information to $10,000 a year ago, four individuals have submitted tips that qualify for the full reward. But a funny thing has happened: none of them has claimed the money. Maybe doing the right thing was more important. I certainly respect that, and it’s not that unusual. In the 300 Crime Stopper programs nationwide, about 60 to 70 percent of all tip pay-outs are never collected.

For some people, however, money is a great motivator. I just wanted to ensure that everyone knows how anonymous the process is for submitting and collecting on successful tips.

The Chief goes on to explain the process, read his post in its entirety.

Accordingly . . .

spend the money on more police not community outreach. Obviously the people who made the tips aren't interested in the reward and did it because it was the right thing to do.

They probably have an asterisk,your testimony in securing a conviction is needed to collect the 10 grand...so basically what they are saying is 4 tipsters were probably murder victims as well.

Yuma, a city on the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona, declared a state of emergency Tuesday, saying it cannot handle the crush of illegal immigrants the government is being forced to release onto its streets.

Mayor Douglas Nicholls said the migrants are being released by the Border Patrol into his community faster than they can leave, and local shelters are already at capacity.

He warned of mobs of people “roaming the streets looking to satisfy basic human needs,” clashing with citizens looking to protect their own property.

Yea if these fucking assholes don’t want to clean up the shit in their own back yard then fuck them. Why should WE be paying for tips. Quit bearing crotch fruit you can’t raise well. Self solving problem.

Grip, TIPS is completely anonymous. Phone calls go to the operators in Texas; phone numbers are never recorded and names are never requested. Emails go to the server in Canada, and made anonymous when they come to the local TIPS area, then the information is deleted forever within 72 hours or less. For the tips, the local detective working for TIPS goes through the tip and omits any descriptions that could identify the individual giving the tip.
