Kansas City Police Department In Bottom Ranks Of Nationwide Study
The Police Scorecard ranked the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department 495 out of 500 departments across America.
Much of the information from the review had to be collected through publicly available information on individual departments. When it came to collecting data on over 16,000 law enforcement agencies Samuel Sinyangwe says, "the federal government could tell you how much rainfall there was in rural Oklahoma going back almost a hundred years, but they couldn't tell you how many people were killed by the police last year or the year before that."
