Since 1939, the governance of the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department has resided not with the people of Kansas City, but the Governor of Missouri, who unilaterally appoints four of five seats on the Board of Police Commissioners. 

Local Control would remove that role with the governor and restore power to the people elected by the citizens of this city. Democracy requires that are institutions are ultimately accountable to the people they serve, the residents of Kansas City. 

Add your name to the petition, demanding local control of the Kansas City Police.
