In 2015, 109 murders were recorded on Kansas City streets, an large increase in crime from the previous year. K.C.P.T. is bringing together this summit of community citizens to explore what causes crime and how to make your community safe.

Enjoy light refreshments and discussing safety in Kansas City with your fellow neighbors. R.S.V.P. at to reserve a spot at The Crime Caucus which will be filmed by K.C.P.T. for a later broadcast.
