Statement of Mark Tolbert, President of the Kansas City Board of Police CommissionersThe Board has just been made aware of the Mayor’s lawsuit, which appears to be another attempt to reduce funding for police in Kansas City. Funding of the Kansas City Police Department is an important issue that should be left to the voters in November.

Regardless, the Board and the Police Department remain focused on working with City leadership to make our City a safe place to live.
