KCPD CHIEF WARNS: BUDGET CUTS CANCEL MINORITY RECRUITING CLASS!!!



The end result of the "defund the police" movement and the constraints of the new budget impacted by coronavirus will be fewer cops on Kansas city streets in the midst of a historic crime spike.

Here's a look at the numbers from the top cop . . .


KCPD Chief: Budget cuts will affect police service to those who need it most

Money line . . .

"Like so many other cities, Kansas City is facing an economic downturn due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Kansas City Missouri Police Department, along with all other City departments, is being asked to identify 4.5% of our budget that could be cut. For us, that’s about $10.5 million. We know that we will have to make sacrifices like everyone else, and we are actively working on the best ways to do that.

"Typically, between 85% and 90% of our budget goes to personnel costs, so personnel would have to comprise a majority of the cuts. We already had dozens of open positions that will not be filled. We are not starting the next scheduled Academy class, and probably will cancel the next three classes.

"What’s particularly unfortunate about canceling the next 30-member class is that it was to consist of 50% minority recruits. Our Employment Unit had done an excellent job recruiting people who reflect our community and come from diverse backgrounds. We hope they still will want to serve Kansas City when revenues allow them to."

KCPD chief is pandering. KCPD chief needs to go to jail. KCPD chief did nothing when stores on the Plaza were being looted and he knew about it. KCPD chief is a dirty cop!

Call your local city council member when the cops are so short staffed the cops can't even come out to take an accident report! Support you local police department. God Bless the Police and screw the local politicians who do not care about us!

The racist Chief would think the class would be the first to go!

So the "minorities" will become "social worker first responders." Problem solved. It's what they are aiming for anyway because "police are bad." This should be fun to watch. Glad I stocked up on popcorn. Mayor Q, dunno if you've noticed but your administration is literally going down in flames you inept FOOL!

Good move on the Chief's part!
In fact, give the whole damn East Side no policing at all for six months - the few decent people there will kiss the Officers when they finally return, and take baseball bats to any "Activist" asshole that starts bad-mouthing the Cops after that.

@6:56 They certainly do. Glad I am outside KC city limits. I'll just sit back and watch the fires. Won't bother me if it burns to the ground. And that's exactly what it's headed for with Mayor Q pouring gas all over the place.

We need to get rid of that horrible Major at East Patrol. He had done nothing for us except destroy our neighborhood. Please bring back Major Volker. That’s who needs to be gone.

Baloney, Smith told the cops to continue the police riots so the looters would have chaos cover.
