Just Being There

Giving Our All to Get a Triple Murderer Into Custody ASAP
We have been working diligently to combat violent crime in our city. What happened on Sunday morning was the epitome of senseless violence: in the course of about an hour, one suspect killed three people in three different places and shot two more in South Kansas City and Raytown.

Crime Reduction Efforts
In 2016, Kansas recorded the most homicides in our states history, causing many of us in the criminal justice system to be deeply concerned. In 2017, Topeka, with a population of 127,000 reported 30 homicides, an all-time high for our state’s capitol. Tulsa, Oklahoma, a city close in population size to Wichita, reported a record […]

Tattoos at RPD
You may have already noticed officers sporting visible tattoos on their arms as we authorized them as of September 1. The U.S. culture is ever changing and law enforcement needs to adapt with it. It seems nearly everyone from 18 to 40 years old is sporting a tattoo of some sort. The people we hire […]
