Struggling for Words in 2019
This nation has had seven law enforcement officers killed in 2019. Reading this headline from Alabama this morning got me thinking as I sit here in disbelief. I don’t know what to say anymore. I am struggling for the words. Perhaps a thought on why some of us made the decision to work in law […]

Missouri’s New Medical Marijuana Law and KCPD
Earlier this month, Missouri voters approved Amendment 2, which legalized medical marijuana. I’ve heard many questions about how this will affect our enforcement activity. The short answer is: it won’t. Amendment 2 allows state-licensed physicians to recommend marijuana use to patients. Doctor-approved patients must obtain an identification card from the state indicating they are permitted […]
