Here's the money line from today's City Hall discussion that offers a scary perspective on the future as locals wait for the Frank White Administration to start moving on a new jail . . .
Police told the committee Wednesday they're not sure they can keep the city safe with so few beds.
"What do we do with people on a day to day basis?" Maj. Doug Niemeier of the KCPD asked. "We've had 100 beds to this point. We're going to get 25. So when citizens call and say, 'I have this issue." We only have 25 beds. We have nowhere to put someone. So are we going to signature bond the person who assaulted you and say, 'I’m sorry ma’am, sir, I know you got assaulted. We’re going to write a ticket.' We’re going to release them and they’re on the street.'"
