Commissioner Don Wagner, Treasurer

Mr. David V. Kenner, Secretary/Attorney

This meeting was called to order at 9:31 a.m. by Commissioner Garrett. Building Security Guard Chrystopher Havener led the Pledge of Allegiance. Chaplain Stan Archie provided the invocation. Mayor James had an excused absence.

  1. Awards and Commendations. The Meritorious Service Award was presented to Captain Stephenie Price, the Special Unit Citation was presented to Captain Stephenie Price, Sergeant Ward Smith, Officers Mark Fogel, Ann Marie Herrera, and Rita Olson-Stawicki, and the Certificate of Appreciation was presented to Jen Brummett, Kim Dyer, Doug Geehan, Andrea Hawk, Mickie Keeling, Teresa Lienhop, and Charles Shields. In 2015, members of the Firearms Training and Tactics Section developed a program to teach traumatic first aid, specifically gunshot wounds and tourniquet usage. Recognizing that many individual officers had already purchased their own first aid kits, the training was designed to be instructive and beneficial to all members, regardless of the brand of kit. However, to put this training into place for Department members, equipment needed to be purchased, but the required kits were very costly and not a budgeted item.

Captain Price was a vital contributor during both the development and implementation phases, and thanks to her nursing degree, was able to provide advice and expertise. She extensively researched funding sources for the purchase of equipment.

In early 2017, the Training Unit became aware that the Trauma Services Unit at Truman Medical Center was interested in discussing a Stop the Bleed program, which would provide training and equipment to first responders in the Kansas City area. Captain Price met with the team at TMC, and was able to convince them to bring the program to KCPD. The TMC Board moved quickly to vote and approve the necessary funding.

A second critical part of the program involved training members in the Stop the Bleed program. Because the program is advanced, Training Unit instructors who did not already have advanced trauma/first aid training would need additional training. Captain Price conducted extensive research, and was able to connect the Midwest Counterdrug Training Center (MCTC), securing multiple training sessions for over 40 Department members, at no cost. She also contacted the Patrol Bureau, discussed the benefits of training, secured approval to proceed and arranged to bring the training to participants at each division station, lessening potential time lost.

To date, more than 800 Department members have received equipment and training, which is now part of the new recruit academy curriculum and a Department standard. Because of Captain Price’s initiative, members now have equipment and training that will allow them to address life threatening injuries to citizens and Department members. She accomplished this with nearly zero cost to the Department, and developed an important partnership with a well-respected healthcare provider.

The Life-Saving Award was presented to Detective David DeLaMare for his quick actions on June 5, 2015. At approximately 7:30 p.m., Detective DeLaMare was working off-duty at the downtown Cosentinos, when customers flagged him down, directing him to a medical emergency at the front of the store. A gentleman, Matt Benish, had collapsed, was unresponsive, not breathing and quickly turning blue. Detective DeLaMare immediately notified dispatch and began CPR on Mr. Benish.

When the Fire Department arrived and took over for Detective DeLaMare, they were able to shock Mr. Benish and several minutes later, he regained consciousness. The firefighters on scene indicated that Detective DeLaMare’s quick actions saved Mr. Benish’s life, a fact also confirmed by doctors at Truman Medical Center.

The Meritorious Service Award was presented to Administrative Assistant Virginia “Jenny” Kerr for her superior work ethic, exception problem-solving skills and unwavering dedication to the KCPD. Civilian Kerr joined the Department in 1991, and her assignments include Metro Patrol on all three watches, the Canine Unit, Helicopter Unit, Communications Unit, Property and Evidence Section, and the Violent Crimes Division. She recently transferred to the North Patrol Division to fill the vacant Administrative Assistant position.

During her time within the Special Operations Division, Civilian Kerr was asked to assume the duties of Administrative Assistant. Despite no time for training, she performed admirably and showed a great attitude about the opportunity. While assigned to the Property and Evidence Section, she created a system to consolidate and simplify the process to keep track of and notify owners/claimants of property when necessary.

In April of 2007, Civilian Kerr transferred to the Violent Crimes Division to take on new responsibilities. As expected, she rose to the occasion and demonstrated excellent typing and organizational skills. Civilian Kerr always showed outstanding listening and communication skills with victims, witnesses and suspects. She showed proficiency even during volatile and emotional situations. Civilian Kerr assumed call-out duties, often responding for shooting events that required clerical staff for statements.

While in the Violent Crimes Division, the technology used by typists changed to a new digital transcription system. There was no formal training, and it became an on-the-job training situation. Along with coworkers, Civilian Kerr studied the instructions, completed online tutorials and quickly became proficient with the new system. She proactively became a trainer in the unit to help others learn the new system.

Prior to transferring to the North Patrol Division, Civilian Kerr took on the major project of physically moving, scanning and indexing hundreds of files from one location to another. She worked diligently on this project and completed the majority of the work before her transfer.

Throughout her various assignments, Civilian Kerr’s conduct has been consistently positive and professional. She truly enjoys helping others. She is compassionate, kind and always willing to go the extra mile for everyone.

The Board took a recess at 9:46 a.m. The meeting resumed at 9:53 a.m.

  1. Councilperson Alissia Canady. Councilperson Alissia Canady spoke about an officer-involved incident that occurred in the Westport Entertainment District, in the early morning hours of September 16, 2018. Councilperson Canady referred to videos that were taken by bystanders, displaying two women fighting in the street, and two KCPD officers responding to break up the fight. She advised that the first video she saw displayed one officer appearing to strike a woman, knocking her to the ground. Councilperson Canady believes that in the first video, it appeared that the officer was using excessive force; however, once a second video was released, it showed another perspective of the incident, which exonerated the officer.

Councilperson Canady stated she received multiple complaints from citizens regarding the officer’s actions. She believes body cameras will help build community support and trust with the Department because they will display the full interaction from a clear perspective. Commissioner Garrett advised that the Board in is favor of body cameras, and that the RFP for body cameras has been released. He advised that the Department is discussing concerns regarding storage, funding and investigative and legal issues.

  1. Chief Richard C. Smith. Chief Richard Smith spoke about a “shoot or no shoot” citizen’s participation exercise that was conducted at the Academy. The exercise exposed community members to situations where they had to make the quick decision of whether or not to fire their weapon. Chief Smith said participants felt the pressures that officers frequently face. After the exercise, the community members were walked through the entire investigation process of shootings. The Department brought in members from the Civil Rights Prosecutors, U.S. Attorney’s Office, Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office, and a representative from the Department’s Human Resources Division. Chief Smith said this exercise will be offered multiple times a year. Commissioner Tolbert, who participated, said the exercise was very beneficial and informative.

Chief Smith requested Board approval to rescind the commendations awarded to Officers William Thompson and Tamara Jones on August 26, 2014. Commissioner Garrett advised that the commendation stems from the officer-involved shooting death of Ryan Stokes in July 2013. After review, there were inaccurate details in the commendations.
