KCPD Chief Statement On Missouri Trans Crackdown: 'No Role In These Law Changes'

Clarification from the top cop won't satisfy extreme sides of the political spectrum BUT should provide a bit of reassurance about police staying out of medical debates.

Here's the word for those who haven't seen it already . . .

Statement from Chief Stacey Graves

"The Department is aware of the recent proposed changes in Missouri law regarding healthcare restrictions on gender affirming treatment. Based on the nature of the proposed changes in the law, the police department plays no role in these law changes because the provisions do not pertain to criminal conduct, but rather seeks enforcement through medical licensing and civil action. These provisions are outside the jurisdiction of the Kansas City Missouri Police Department. I want to assure Kansas City, we will continue to serve all the members of the community equitably regardless of race, ethnicity, age, religion, gender, gender identity, gender expression or sexual orientation."
