Kansas City community focuses on crime prevention

Kansas City United Against Crime, a local crime-prevention initiative, aims to close the gap between local law enforcement and communities in an effort to reduce crime in Kansas City, Mo.

Efforts are underway to organize several events during the month of October.  Look forward to more information after Labor Day.  

Kansas City Mayor Sly James recently met with President Barack Obama at the White House to discuss violent crime in the community.  

James shared how half of Kansas City’s homicides can be traced to a 13-square-mile segment of the 319-square-mile city. Read the Kansas City Star story.

Persons can prevent crime through crime prevention education and reporting crime-related offenses to local law enforcement.

Residents will have the opportunity to learn more about crime prevention with free family activities around the metro area.

Connect with Kansas City United Against Crime on Facebook to stay updated with crime-prevention resources in the community.  

LINC is supporting the effort by helping staff the coalition and developing the website and Facebook page. The website contains information about each police patrol division and a map that will show current crimes by typing in a zip code.
