I've previously announced that I will retire from the position of Chief of Police on Sept. 16 of this year. The Board of Police Commissioners will be hiring the next chief, and they need your input. Read the below press release to see which forums are closest to you.

The Kansas City Missouri Board of Police Commissioners will be soliciting input from the public about what qualities they would like to see in the next chief of police.
