The truth about how we respond to demonstrations and protests
Despite online rumors and conspiracy theories, let me be clear that the Kansas City Missouri Police Department never invites any person or groups to a demonstration. The KCPD does not sanction any demonstration events. In regard to a protest on Aug. 19, 2017, we never asked for any assistance from any militia group, nor would […]

The case for encryption and delay
Lincoln is in the process of acquiring a new public safety radio system. The new system is from Motorola, and is a P25 trunked system, which is inherently digital. Since it is a digital radio system, encryption is easy to implement. It is our intention to use encryption to protect law enforcement-sensitive transmissions. We do […]

A Small Three Bedroom and One Bath Ranch
The small three bedroom and one bath ranch with brick steps was a mirror image of the small 1960s era homes on either side of it. The unkempt shrubs, weed infested lawn, and alligator cracks in the driveway asphalt set it apart from the others. There was an empty leash in the backyard. It was […]

Remembering All of Our Victims
As we are in the midst of some of the worst gun violence our City has ever experienced, my thoughts turn to victims. We are all anxious and concerned about the brazen acts occurring citywide (“shots fired” calls are up 63% over last year’s figure/year-to-date). But innocent people have also been killed from edged weapons […]

Final Thoughts
This is my last week at EPD. I felt it worthwhile to give you a few lasting impressions. EPD, you are rock stars. We, the leaders of this city, have asked you to do an almost impossible job; yet daily you suit up, strap on and wade into the swamp of human tragedy to solve […]

Update on implementation of body-worn cameras
Last fall, the KCPD engaged in a 12-week pilot project to determine the cost and infrastructure required to implement body-worn cameras on all patrol officers. We presented the results of that project to the Board of Police Commissioners this week. I also wanted to share those results with our community. The pilot project was a […]
