Description

Report prepared by the Kansas City Public Service Institute, under the direction of the Kansas City Chamber of Commerce, surveying the Kansas City Police Department. Public Service Institute director Walter Matscheck states in an introductory note that the institute believes "that the adoption of the recommendations contained in this report will give Kansas City one of the best operated police departments in the United States." The report details problems faced by police, the organization of the department, details the personnel, including their training and compensation, and the buildings, equipment, and finances of the department. The report concludes that the level of crime in Kansas City is bad but improving, that the police force is poorly organized and deployed, that political considerations have been a major factor in hiring and promoting employees, and identifies efficiencies that could be made with improved equipment.
