Kansas City Mayor Proposes Public Dashboard For Police
Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas said he wants to put statistics about the city’s police force on a public-facing, online dashboard in an effort to increase accountability, identify areas for improvement and build community trust. Under a resolution that Lucas introduced this past week, the city manager would determine specific data points to request from the police department on a regular basis. The Kansas City Star reports that the data would be used to create a performance management reporting dashboard. The resolution will be heard in a committee on Tuesday and could be voted on by the City Council as soon as Friday.
